Prayer Journal for People with Chronic Illness: God Meets Me Here is a precious prayer aid from our beloved friend and writer, Lisa Schea.
Even in chronic illness, God is with us. We invite you to invest 30 days in devotional prayer for strength, encouragement and guidance with long time homeschooler, Lisa Schea. In this sweet prayer journal, Lisa shares her experiences with COPD and other long-term illnesses, shares blessings, and shows realistic ways to pray.
Read about Lisa’s experiences and advice for homeschooling with chronic illness in this post.
Lisa Schea was a grateful wife and proud mother of five sons who has been home schooling since 1987. She gave her life to Christ as a young adult after surviving a traumatic childhood. Throughout her adulthood she has faced a variety of mental and physical illnesses. However, despite her health trials, she continued to be a loving wife, mother and stalwart of the local homeschooling community.
Calling herself a “poster child for God’s Grace”, she has found joy, love, and acceptance in her Father’s loving arms. It was her heartfelt prayer that the following devotionals will encourage others who deal with brokenness in their daily lives. God is with us even in the darkest places, it is up to us to seek His face. Her guiding verse is: “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13.
Here’s an excerpt from Day One:
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34.
My physical health leaves much to be desired. I have a condition that requires full-time supplemental oxygen, in addition to diabetes and a few other issues. I have also faced a smorgasbord of trauma and mental illness over the years.
The lung disease has progressed to a point where it greatly impairs my daily life. Accepting that I am unable to do things for my family has been difficult, and now they have to do even more for me.
Our very special 7th Sister went to be with the Lord in 2017 but her prayer journal lives on and continues to encourage people who deal with chronic illnesses.
