When we point one another to Christ during our struggles, we can grow stronger, sharper, more beautiful together. The journey is richer.
Together, we are learning to live a life of celebration amid this unexpected journey through chronic illness, mental illness, chronic pain, and disability.
Grief affects everyone of us, whether it’s through death, loss, unexpected change, or chronic illness. We hope these words will encourage you as you journey through grief and discover hope in creative ways.
I used to think the phrase “chronic pain” pertained primarily to physical symptoms — aching joints, relentless fatigue, involuntary movements, difficulty with everyday tasks, and more. Yet in the three years since my pain journey began, I’ve found myself riding an emotional roller coaster I didn’t see coming.
Have you ever felt empty – with absolutely nothing left to give? Have you tried everything, yet nothing seems to help? Perhaps the isolation and simple survival of life with chronic illness feels too heavy and too much? The widow remembered her little pot of oil. That’s when the miracle began.
