My friend with a chronic illness was living in a foreign country. When she visited the doctor, she couldn’t speak the language. She brought along a relative that could speak it and assumed everything would be OK.
Sadly, my friend’s relative didn’t believe she was ill. She used the opportunity to convince doctors that my friend didn’t need medication or care. She purposely caused my friend much suffering through her lies.
It’s hard when those we love don’t believe we’re sick or don’t think we’re in that much pain. It’s bad enough to be sick but when it feels like those you love don’t care? It’s heartbreaking.
That’s why I love Psalm 56:9. David says, “This I know: God is on my side!” (NLT)
Even when it feels like no one is looking out for you, God has your back! He’s looking out for you and causing EVERYTHING to work together for your good. That’s a promise you can rest in today.
Can I pray for you today: Father God, we humbly come today and want to say thank You. Thank You for being here in the midst of everything good, bad, and indifferent. No matter how it may seem, I know that You are always by our side. Thank you for reassuring us that your love, protection, and comfort. In Your Holy Name, Amen.
