Pointless

Father,

It is pointless
To resent, or hate,
Our illness,

For anger 
Will not make it 
Go away.   

Instead, 
Help us to live
With how we are,

To manage,
And to learn 
From it,

Making the best
We can 
Of every day.

***************************

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity (Hebrews 6:1; NIV).

I was given a thorn in my flesh […] Three times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9; NLT).

 When your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow (James 1:3; NLT).
