Trusting The Lord Through Illness {Invisible Illness Week}

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord.  And whose hope is the Lord."  Jeremiah 17:7

Do you find yourself having difficulty trusting the Lord in the midst of illness?  Is it hard to let go and let God?  I remember reading about Peter out on the water.  He heard Jesus' voice and took a step of faith out on the water.  But then he started hearing old thoughts and beliefs and started to sink.

We need to remember to keep our eyes focused on Jesus.  We need to be reminded not to focus on our  limitations and worries.

Prayer:  Lord help us to remember to focus our eyes on you.  Guide us through this illness.  Remind us that you still have great things planned for us.  Amen.

It is time for the National Invisible Illness Awareness Week again.  It will be from September 10- 16.  There will be a virtual conference with different speakers speaking on different aspects of chronic illness.  This year's theme is Invisible Illness?  Share Your Visible Hope.  Here is a link to learn more.  Come and get the support you need.
