Naples Chronic Illness Support Group in Naples on 10/06/16
Are you wondering, why God allows good people to suffer? Or why God causes pain?” You aren’t alone.
This Bible study is equipped to apply those big questions to the day-to-day emotions that you may be experiencing while you learn to live with this “new normal” of daily chronic pain, loneliness, wondering what happened to all of your friends, and just learning to cope with exhaustion and fatigue.
Through Scripture, personal inventory of some of your emotions, and study questions, you will soon have a better grasp on how you can move forward with a new outlook on your disease.
This will be a 5 week study discussing:
Where is God When it Hurts? – Dive into the emotions of coping with chronic illness. How does one cope with the loneliness and isolation of illness? How can one feel God’s presence more intimately during times of suffering?
Lord, I Dont Understand – We all wonder why God has allowed illness to be a part of our lives. Is it forever or temporary? What lesson should we learn from it? How can we grow closer to God despite the fact that He may not provide all the answers we may ask Him, especially when we want them?
The Exhaustion is Taking Over – When these feeling of exhaustion occur, we feel frustrated, unproductive and useless. Can God really use us when we can barely get out of bed and if so, how?
I Am So Scared About the Future – You may hear, “The Bible tells us to never worry about anything,” or “‘Real’ Christians always trust the Lord knows best so you need to pray harder.” But when your health is falling apart around you, how do you trust God? Discover what your true fears are and how exactly to turn them over to God.
My Friends Just Dont Understand – “You look so good!” Surely you’ve heard this on more than one occasion and you may not know if you should take is as a compliment or as someone misunderstanding the seriousness of your chronic illness. How do you get passed friends who just don’t seem to get how much your life has changed since becoming ill.
