Awaiting Jehovah’s Day With Endurance

***????***

Illness Has Not Stopped Them ~

God does not now cure us miraculously, but he does give us the fortitude to endure illness. ) 

????

(Psalm 41:1-3) . . .Happy is anyone acting with consideration toward the lowly one; In the day of calamity Jehovah will provide escape for him. 2 Jehovah himself will guard him and preserve him alive. He will be pronounced happy in the earth; And you cannot possibly give him over to the soul of his enemies. 3 Jehovah himself will sustain him upon a divan of illness; All his bed you will certainly change during his sickness."

“For as long as I can recall,” said Sharon, “the wheelchair has been my constant companion. From birth on, cerebral palsy robbed me of childhood joys.” Learning about Jehovah and his promises of perfect health gave Sharon hope. Although she speaks and walks with difficulty, she finds joy in the Christian ministry.

Some 15 years ago, she said: “My health may continue to fail, but my trust in God and my relationship with him are my lifelines. How happy I am to be among Jehovah’s people and to have his unfailing support!”

The apostle Paul urged Christians in Thessalonica to “speak consolingly to the depressed souls.” (1 Thessalonians 5:14) Such factors as grave disappointment can cause depression. Sharon wrote: “Feeling like an utter failure, I . . . plunged into a three-year period of deep depression. . . . Comfort and counsel came from the elders. . . . Through The Watchtower, Jehovah tenderly provided insight into severe depression. Yes, he does care for his people and understands our feelings.” (1 Peter 5:6, 7) 

????

Sharon is still serving God faithfully as she awaits Jehovah’s great day.
