Verse of the Day and Thoughts
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. —2 Corinthians 4:8-11
This is a great verse when it comes to giving us hope. We are children of God and we are better than despair. I feel like fibromyalgia can cause us to feel moments of despair, but we should not give into the sin. We should try our hardest no matter what, because God has a plan for each and every one of us. If we are negative and give in to sin, we are bad examples for Christians everywhere. I know it is easier said than done, but we must keep the hope of Jesus alive within us. Let's pray for one another. Let's pray for continuous hope, health, peace and happiness.
