Today starts Invisible Illness Awareness Week. Each day there will be a post at the Invisible Illness Week website (our sister site) on the podcasts we are “featuring” that day.
I began this in 2002 and it’s reached out to hundreds of thousands of people over the years, encouraging them that they are not alone.
This year we will not be having a “live show.” I made this decision earlier in the year for many reasons, and have been glad I listened to the Lord’s instruction. August I was sick most of the month from an allergic reaction to a medication.
The day after my son returned to school, for the first time in 15 years my computer had it’s hard drive go bad. (On an 18-month old computer!) It was at the shop a week and just I it was returned last week I started installing programs when San Diego had their record-breaking electrical outage. No power, plus school cancelled the next day.
So I sit here the evening before, watching shows on 9/11 and wondering where Invisible Illness Week fits into it all. Perhaps the same message I have always tried to tell people who are hurting–
You are not alone.
Yes, life is hard. The world is full of suffering. . .
But God cares, and He is listening. Just talk to Him. Just talk.
