Living with illness

Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble? (Job 2:10; NIV).

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation (James 1:12; NLT).

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NIV).

When I accept my illnesses,
Both physical and mental,
Making the most I can of life
Within my limitations,
I have no sense of being ill
At all.

Thank you
That life isn’t only worthwhile
When we are well.

However I am,
Please help me
To be patient a
nd joyful,
Praying continually,
And thanking you
In all circumstances.

Through Jesus’ name,
