Praise and Joy

It can be difficult when you are chronically ill to be optimistic or positive about the challenges you face. I woke up today with some pain, but more than that, I woke up thankful. Thankful for a God who allows me to feel light and excited about the day. I woke up praising the Lord for his unique love and understanding. It can hard when we get stuck in despair when we feel so bogged down with pain and hopelessness. Being chronically ill can do that and more often that not, a lot of us become susceptible to depression. Personally, I wouldn’t be able to get through this hardship and pain with Him. It’s so important for me that I have that base of belief in good and that some of this is only temporary pain and hurt. Having faith and a relationship with the Lord has allowed me to have hope and joy in unsuspecting ways when it seems difficult to be happy. I am so excited to start my day and enjoy His love. I hope that today, you find something wonderful to be excited about.

Praise him—he is your God, and you have seen with your own eyes the great and astounding things that he has done for you. (Deuteronomy 10:21)
