Our family has had many struggles going back to the beginning of our marriage. Our oldest son received a liver transplant when he was a child. Along with that hard thing, we have experienced many other difficulties that left me struggling to believe that I would ever again see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
What I have thought about lately and wanted to share with you is that even extremely hard things, including chronic health issues, can get better over time. We have had both physical and mental health issues that were extremely serious and some have improved dramatically, albeit slowly, over time.
I want to encourage anyone that may read this post and feel discouraged, perhaps almost out of hope, to take heart and just keep pressing on. It is just as easy to believe things can change as to believe things can’t, and to be honest, you really don’t know how things will eventually play out.
My life verse~
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27: 13-14
