“My illness didn’t surprise God. These times of tearing down and mourning were purposed. There was a bigger plan. God was giving me a glimpse…There was so much more He wanted to teach me about loving one another.” Pamela Piquette

 

LOVE ONE ANOTHER

 

WE ARE WIRED TO SERVE. While culture and tradition may narrow the framework of options, the Holy Spirit splits it wide open, inspiring creative and accessible opportunities for every single member of the Body of Christ to serve. Perhaps we view serving as big acts, significant time commitments, or specific gifts and talents. When we add chronic illness, serving in traditional or culturally familiar ways can become challenging … but definitely not impossible. Galatians 5:13b says, “… serve one another humbly in love.” But how can we do that with chronic illness? Here are some ideas and tools to help you take a step of faith:

Your chronic illness story matters.

Story Matters

Story is the tale of our lives -- and it matters. Chronic illness can be isolating and lonely, but sharing our stories can open a door, extend hope, and sometimes spark a life-giving, life-changing conversation with someone else along the way. We’d love to hear your story.

Lament - Crying out to God in prayer

Lament

Pushing our pain aside, hiding it, or feeling shame because of it diminishes our human experience. If Jesus wept and cried out in anguish, why do we feel it is somehow faithless to honestly express lament?
