If You Can Find a Purpose to the Suffering, the Suffering Becomes More Bearable

Believing that God has a plan for me has kept me grounded through the challenge of chronic illness. That doesn’t mean it hasn’t felt near impossible to get through (most days). It just means that I always knew there was a purpose to my suffering, even if I didn’t know what the exact purpose was yet. I trusted that everything would one day work out.

Try and find a purpose to the suffering.

For those who aren’t sure what they believe – It’s OKAY

Never let anyone shame you for not believing in something you feel like you should. How can you believe in something that you have never personally felt or experienced? You can’t! So don’t beat yourself up. Life is hard enough.

Never let anyone use religion against you. That is not what it is meant for.

  1. I think it’s not talked about enough how some people walk in a grey area with their faith. Some days I believe, some days I don’t. There are certain people that have shamed me for that in the past or said that I’m not immersed enough but to me, I feel like it’s a natural experience for a lot of people and we’re afraid to talk about it.

    • Yes, I totally agree Lynzy! Everyone is so scared to talk about it, including me. 😂 I am working on becoming more open about talking about it because I have seen way too many people being shamed for what they do or don’t believe and that is never how it should work. So sorry you went through that. We are all trying to figure things out as we go! None of us really have a clue what we’re doing anyway. 😂
