The world moves quickly; if you blink you will miss something. Slowing down does not seem to be something people do. Every thing is rush, rush, rush. Our days are jam packed with school, work, family things, and social activities. Our to do lists seem to grow by leaps and bounds.  Waiting has become a daunting task for the average American.

Our priorities have become blurred. Too often spending time with God is just another task to cross off our to do list. We forget how precious spending time with Him is. Like most tasks we rush through our time with God breezing through a Bible passage or devotional. We ramble off our wish list instead of coming to God in prayer. Our time with God is not quality time thus not allowing us to grow. We depart from this time not feeling the way God intend us to feel after spending time with him.

We need to learn to slow  down. To sit openly and humbly at the Lords feet, genuinely seeking His will for our lives. Allowing his peace to comfort us.

Our timing is different then Gods timing. We must remember that His timing is flawless. He understands the full picture. We must be willing to wait for his direction and for his gentle voice. To stay in the spirit until the spirit says to move. Completely surrendering; contently waiting.

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!
