INSPIRING BLOG POSTS
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.

In this Oasis of Hope, we marvel at the kindness, creativity and glory of our awesome God. We see how even in the hardest times His sustaining grace will carry us. And we learn how surrendering to him with reckless abandon can lead to wonder and awe and creativity in our own lives, with true freedom.
Jesus sets a perfect example of being a servant leader. He knew who He was. He came from God. He was going back to God. Knowing both, He got up and served.
We need the undeserved kindness of God desperately in this troubled world. Christ-followers, having known the forgiveness and grace of God toward us in our brokenness, need to be the kindest people. Let’s do something kind for another today, but let’s make it purposeful, not random.
What if instead of trying to get rid of anxiety we learn the strengths that come with it? I believed anxiety was a powerful enemy. I’m learning it’s a potential ally.
Human beings are made in the image of God, the Creator Himself! We are called to create in our own way. Today. Be brave. Step in. Give it a spin.
Yes, there is still pain, and lack of ability to be who I once was, I only make matters worse when I forsake gratitude. Praise God in every season.
