Chronic Illness and Friendship Series

Thank you for joining us for the Chronic Illness and Friendship seriesI hope that this series on friendship and chronic illness has been beneficial for both the healthy and the chronically ill as we seek to be good friends to those whom God has placed in our lives.

As we reach out to others in friendship, let us remember to have the mind of Christ. Let us consider others more important than ourselves. Let us serve one another in our friendships.
"Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:3-11

  1. These are such great topics to blog about, Rachel. I remember when I first became so sick, I really relied on my mom who had been disabled for several years from carcinoid. Her patient support, going to appointments with me when I needed it, driving me places, phone chats, and prayers helped me to accept my limitations. Being a friend to someone who is chronically ill doesn't require even nearly as much effort as my mom put in, but just being remembered through emails, phone calls or small things. It's easy to feel the world passes you by when you have any degree of limitation, especially if you're mostly home bound like yourself. Hugs to you...

  2. Thanks, Janie. I'm so glad you had your mom to help you when you became so sick. Those early days/months of chronic illness can be the hardest. How wonderful that you had someone who understood and could come alongside you!
