As you’ve already read in my last piece, our family struggled through renal failure and dialysis for four years. During this time, I learned about having a solid support system of believers who can pray for you. Our local church heard so many prayer requests, we were on the prayer chain at several churches and had many friends who would listen.
I had a email chain, any time something came up I would email them and eventually moved the story on to my blog and Facebook. One place God used was Twitter! I had a amazing group of women that I could tweet at all hours of the day and night. They often were the first responders in prayer and support. They held me up many a time when the outlook was bleak and dreary.
A reason that I offered to be a contributor on this site was to offer myself as a supporter and encourager to sisters and brothers in Christ. Sharing my difficult journeys in life to help others is rewarding. It makes me rejoice in all things and be thankful to have lived the life I have. If I can help just one person bear the load and make it lighter, it is all worth it.
I would love to be able to pray for each of you and get to know the readers of the site better. I hope you will leave a comment and let me have the privilege of giving back what God has given to me through many others.
