Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.


While reading Matthew 8:5-10 KJV, I was overwhelmed with the faith that was demonstrated by the centurion:

“And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.”

I read this…then read this again. Each time the same question came to my mind…is my faith as strong as the centurion demonstrated?

Each of us is in a different place in our Faith.  Just as the path of chronic pain has its twists and turns…its ups and downs…so does our walk of Faith.  There are times we feel strong and secure…like we have a full measure….there are times that we struggle…like we are grasping tightly to that small grain of Faith that is the size of a mustard seed.

Remember…no matter where we are on these paths…our Heavenly Father is there…always watching…and listening to our prayers.
