New Years Encouragement

“The new year is indeed like a clean slate of fresh snow. It hasn’t been marked yet by countless tracks of pain. We can’t see the broken branches and other debris of problems hidden underneath. We haven’t gotten stuck in the slushy and muddy melting repercussions of our struggles.” Bronlynn Spindler

This New Year is a new start, embrace it with an open heart. Let go of all negative things from the past year. I pray this Holiday season has renewed your strength and your hope. Over the past year you have overcome many hardships, you have grown as an individual, and you have accomplished so much. You have won many battles against your illness. You have demonstrated admirable strength, courage, and hope. I hope as you reflect on 2014 you are able to be proud of the things you have accomplished. I hope you see all the blessings of 2014. (Please share how 2014 blessed you in the comments.) You have been an encouragement and a source of hope.

This year will be drenched with blessings and many breath taking moments. No doubt there will be struggles and setbacks. There is no need to worry about the negatives. Focus on living each day to its fullest and cherishing every moment. You will be provided with all the strength and everything else you need in order to achieve victory. This will be a year glowing with beauty.

May the Lord overflow your life with joy, blessings, love, and goodness this year. May he guide your every step. May you grow closer to him daily. May you embrace every moment. I hope you are able to love life and understand how valuable you and your life is. May you fight with all you’ve got against your illness. May you hold onto hope when the world seems to be caving in around you. You will accomplish breath taking things this year. You will make a difference. Your precious story will bring hope, comfort, and encouragement to many people.

What is your New Years Resolution?

What do you look forward to in 2015?

HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! Sending prayers, spoons, and hugs ❤

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”  Isaiah 43:18-19

Welcome, it is an honor you dropped by. I am Victoria. A twenty-something-year-old battling multiple chronic illnesses while learning how to thrive. Chronically Hopeful was designed to educate others and to provide support to those who are chronically ill. Proving encouragement to others is essential to me. I share my health on here. My major illnesses are Lupus, Hyperadrenergic Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, EDS, Mast Cell, Endo, and Ulcerative Colitis. I want to share my story with you hoping you will experience support; that someone else understands your pain, struggles, and frustrations. God has chosen not to heal me but to hold me. The more intense the pain the closer his embrace”. My faith, as a Christian has sustained me through the stormy waters of the past few chapters of my life. I desire to grow closer to God and lead others closer to Him. I help lead two online women’s Bible studies. I also post devotionals. I am pursuing my bachelor’s degree through Liberty University’s online program. Despite my illnesses, I have thrived in school. I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Psi Chi the International Honor Society, and Tau Sigma Honor Society. Abby is my service dog in training. I also have three cats Gracey, Fluffy, and Sadie Rose. I am looking forward to hearing your precious story. Sending hugs, prayers, and spoons. Have an amazing day!
