Purpose in Your Pain

The cloak of chronic illness does not define you and does not limit God’s plans for your life. Perhaps you are struggling to see your purpose in your pain. I promise you, my friend, even if you can’t see it, your purpose is there – the Bible says so!

Do You Hear My Prayer

Chronic illness is an extremely heavy burden. It can feel so heavy we can wonder if God truly is He who says He is and if His promises are true. Our hearts wrestle with these huge questions and they sometimes fill us with doubt but we can look to God with certainty that no matter our pain, we are not alone.
