Walking alongside my friend as she battles an autoimmune disease has been a humbling experience. Witnessing her navigate the challenges, physical limitations, and emotional ups and downs has left a profound impact on my heart.
But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)
Living with an autoimmune disease can often make us feel inadequate, like we are prisoners in our own bodies, unable to fully participate in life. We may wonder why we have to endure such a struggle, and why God has allowed this burden to be placed upon us.
In these moments of doubt, let us remember the words of the Apostle Paul, who pleaded with God three times to remove his “thorn in the flesh.” Yet, God responded with profound wisdom, assuring Paul that His grace would be sufficient.
When we feel weakest, God’s strength is made perfect in us. It is in our vulnerabilities that God’s power shines through, illuminating our lives with His love and mercy. Through our struggles, we are reminded of our dependence on Him, humbly acknowledging that we cannot face these challenges alone. As we surrender our weaknesses to Him, we experience His comforting presence and feel His loving arms wrap around us, carrying us through each day.
The road of chronic illness may be long and tiresome, but as we walk it with faith, we find blessings even in the midst of pain. We learn to appreciate the small victories, the moments of respite, and the supportive community that surrounds us. Our journey becomes a testimony of God’s faithfulness and an opportunity to encourage others facing similar battles.
