2 Corinthians 12:8, 9 – Three Times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Some of the hardest words to hear are, “There is no cure.” How do I go on with my life when I find out I’m going to have to live with this illness? There are no easy answers. Each person has to face what’s going on and travel down the road towards acceptance. For me, I can’t just take one step at a time. I have to take one moment at a time and be prepared for days when I don’t even want to try to move forward. I’m thankful that I’m not in this alone. I always have my traveling companion with me – Jesus. I couldn’t do this thing called life without him. Do you have my traveling companion with you? He’s only a prayer away.
