But, the more I think about it, I realize that we all wake up each morning to chronic conditions. It may be physical or perhaps it is emotional, spiritual, or relational in the form of an ongoing situation, besetting sin, or problematic relationship; something that, as you look back over your life, has been there for years upon years. I was flipping through my journal and found that while some things have changed many have not. I see the same prayers and questions over and over in its pages: chronic conditions that, in all likelihood, will never change.
“Marked by a long duration – by frequent recurrence over a long time” this is what chronic means and it feels so negative, but dare we look at the positive side of chronic?
“It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed for they are new every morning, great is thy faithfulness” Lamentations 3:23.
God’s love is chronic in our lives.
There is never a sunrise that is not accompanied by His mercies and strength.
