“He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of he stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit”. (Psalm 147 3-5 NIV)
Living with chronic illness and dealing with a daily lifestyle of pain is never easy. Many times we look back at the times we were healthier or were able to spread our wings and do more than we can do now.
Then there are the times we deal with well meaning people that do not understand our illnesses, and they seem to think we can “surely get better” if we will just try harder, trust God more, exercise, eat healthier, etc. You know what I am talking about don’t you! We have all been there.
The important thing is… we know our limitations, but many times there are those that do not understand.
Oh but my dear ones… God does understand, and He is always there to mend a broken heart. He is with us 24/7, 365 days a year. He is faithful and just. He is only a prayer away. He will dry your tears my friends.
Call out to Him. Not only will He dry our tears but He will also give us the strength we need to get through our trials, and will give us the ability to forgive those that do not understand us.
May we all trust in the One that is our provider, protector and our redeemer.
The LORD bless you, and keep you: The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you: The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, protect you and give you peace.
