If you’ve been chronically ill for many years you probably already know how to be patient in affliction.
Patience is often an unpopular word and experience. When I was a child, before the days of iPads, I would plague my parents during car journeys by asking ‘are we nearly there yet?’.
Children wait well when they are occupied.
With God, how you wait matters and how you occupy this waiting time is significant.
Living with a chronic illness involves being patient for the long haul which is painfully tough during those years of affliction. It’s easy to think what we’re waiting for will never arrive.
