We all have them. And they can often get worse as we age. Until we enjoy our glorified bodies in Heaven, we will remain susceptible to pain and illness. Thankfully, modern medicine has made it possible to control or eliminate many of our physical afflictions. Some, however, nag us over long periods of time. This can lead to frustration, discouragement, a diminished “quality of life” and so on. But it can also be an occasion of great redemptive sacrifice, if we allow God’s grace to enter into the situation. Share your takes today on how you or someone you know has gracefully managed to live with chronic pain or illness, and perhaps even become a source of inspiration to those around him or her!
