Comforting Bible Verses for Chronic Illness

As I mentioned here, March was Endometriosis Awareness month. I thought I would get to post more on it, but the fact is, there are lots of medically graphic pictures and drawings, and I just didn't want to post them on here. If you are interested in learning more, just Google it, or you can email me and I'll share with you privately. It's a choice I made because ANYONE, children included could come across this blog and I just wouldn't want them to see horrid pictures.

However, I did want to share a few bible verses that comfort me when I need it. Although mine is a physical pain most of the time, there are emotional pains, spiritual pains... all types of pains. There are just times when nothing can make you feel better, not even a bubble bath!  But God is always there, ready to help. All you need to do is ask.

Here are a couple of my go-to verses. And I hope they bring you comfort when you need it!

Job 6:10 This would be my comfort; I would even exult in pain unsparing, for I have not denied the words of the Holy One.
Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Psalm 34:18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Jeremiah 17:14  Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.
Matthew 7:7-8 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Acts 5:16 Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by impure spirits, and all of them were healed. 
Romans 8:18  For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
1 Corinthians 10:13   No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Hebrews 7:25 Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. In Greek the word “save” in this verse means to heal, preserve, save, do well, be (make) whole.
1 Peter 5:9-10   Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace,who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
