We all have questions, grief, discouragement, pain, feelings of discontent and sorrow. Chronic illness just seems to magnify all the issues. There are no pat answers for all our questions. How do we find inspiration when we feel so alone? Read our inspiring blog posts and webpages that wrestle with the difficult questions and share different perspectives.
Together in radical community, as we tell our own stories, we will find ways to encourage one another and build each other up. Even when we don’t have all the answers, we are encouraged when we see others who struggle as we do. It helps us know we are not alone. We really are sharing life and discovering hope.
INSPIRING BLOG POSTS HELP US THRIVE IN THE MIDST OF CHRONIC ILLNESS
We have many contributing writers who share thoughtful and heartfelt articles. They are not afraid to write about their struggles or wrestle with difficult circumstance and questions. They explore ways to find joy and peace, and to thrive in a life of chronic illness.
There are posts that encourage us to explore the difficulties and to bring our lament to God. There are no quick fixes and often our circumstances change very little. But as we read through these stories, we are better able to face our own struggles.
By sharing their stories, these writers show us how they work through difficulties. They show us despair but also hope, sorrow but also joy, courage and endurance. Through their struggles we might just find a way through ours that leads to peace. God is working in our lives even when we aren’t aware it’s happening.

The way I see it, anxiety’s not always a criminal who picks the lock of your soul and takes you hostage until you give something up, whatever that “something” is. Though it does feel as if anxiety breaks into our souls like a thief, he doesn’t seem to want to take something and go. He stays. He lingers.
