I wanted to share this quote I found today that might help someone with their daily struggles with chronic illness.
“I choose joy… I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance. I will refuse the temptation to be cynical…the tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God. I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God.” ——Max Lucado, Upwords
Two significant words in this world today for everyone, not just people with chronic pain.
We cannot be ruled by our circumstances. Our lives are easier to live when we look for the beauty in our broken parts and in the world and when we accept where we are at in that point in time.
However, our perspectives do rule our lives, and it is something we can work on changing.
Some people get angry when the talk is about “controlling pain with your mind.” No, I do not believe you can control your pain with your mind. But I do believe the journey can be lighter with a change in our mindset.
Today, find one thing that is good in your life and praise Him for it.
Much Love and Many Prayers,
