For the one fighting chronic illness, every day things can be a battle. And sometimes we just need a little bit of encouragement.
I didn't intend to fill this post with my own words. Instead, I wanted this post today to be filled with the word's of God from Scripture and encourage you as you live out this daily battle for God's glory. <3
