Is An Ill Friend Spiritual? Say, “Tell Me About God.”
If you live with illness and depend on your faith, you may find a friend who asks, “Tell me about God and how he gets you through these challenges.”
There are some people who may not like this message. But despite what our culture tells us today, people are seeking for why they are here. What is their purpose? And what is the reason for their pain? If you have a friend who is ill and believes in God, depending on Him for support during the challenges, never hesitate to ask her, “Tell me about God. Why do you still believe in Him even though He is allowing you to be in such pain?” What gets chronically ill people up each day and still feeling hopeful?
Those who have a faith in God, and I include myself in that community, find great peace in knowing that God is in control of it all. We are here for a specific reason. We do have a purpose. And just because we have a chronic (painful, daily, exhausting) illness, doesn’t mean that we are going to get any less than God’s best for us.
We try to keep this life in perspective because it is just a short time when you consider we are offers life for eternity. And when you give us the opportunity to share how we still get out of bed I the morning, despite the pain, it delights us. We want to hear you say, “Tell me about God.”
Note from -ljc. . . I know some people will read this and be offended. If so, just click away. I have the choice to be offended every day by a million things that do not offer accommodation to my beliefs, but life is just to short to expect people to change for my benefit. I hope you will still find much value in our web site here.
