Thursday, November 25

Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, but a good word cheers it up.—Prov. 12:25.


Illness can take an emotional toll on us. We may feel embarrassed when people notice our limitations or when we must rely on others for help. Even when others are not aware of our illness, we may fight feelings of shame because of how limited we have become. At such distressing times, Jehovah lifts us up. How? In the Bible, Jehovah has stored up good words that remind us that we matter to him despite our sickness. (Ps. 31:19; 41:3) Through those inspired words, Jehovah will help us to deal with the negative emotions that our illness brings. Be assured that Jehovah knows what you are going through. Beg him for help so that you can develop a wholesome view of your situation. Then use the Bible to retrieve the good words Jehovah has stored up for you. Focus on passages that show how much Jehovah values his servants. As you do, you will see that Jehovah is good to all those who serve him faithfully.—Ps. 84:11. w20.01 15-16 ¶9-10; 17 ¶12

We are Jehovah's creation. He doesn't make junk. He never meant meant for us to get sick and feel broken. It saddens him to see us in our state. He longs to heal and repair us. Even now he has good words for us through the Psalms to help us endure. Hang in there friends. He tells us -the best is still ahead of us.
