OUR VIA DOLOROSA



A physician spoke about fibromyalgia groups and for the most part, I have to agree with him...

"The doctor said I should NOT to go to any fibromyalgia support groups, he said they are extremely depressing and so negative,he said that is one reason folks don't get well, instead of being positive,all they do is promote negativity. He said they must have been invented by a person who wanted sympathy and it caught on."

I have seen some groups like that but unless Christ is central the group will be just like that... instead of negativity, we have hope in our Saviour. We comfort each other and bear each other's burdens so as to fulfil the law of Christ. Our focus is on helping each other as well as ourselves.. and we look to Jesus daily for our strength and point each other to Him. God knows, this path we walk is so hard for each of us... but we do not give up even though our steps may falter....
Isn't it normal to want some comfort and company, which I suppose could be seen by many to be a plea for sympathy... and is it so wrong to have sympathy for someone who is suffering? isn't that the Way of Christ? We are all faltering under the cross that we are bearing on the long journey Home and we have all had our moment in our private Garden of Gethsemane... we are walking the Via Dolorosa every day...

We wipe each others' brow and offer some water.... and we do so in love and empathy... that was taught to us by no other than Jesus Himself... so unless Jesus is focal point of a group, it will be just as this doctor described...

If you are a sick Christian WOMAN you may like my group on FaceBook for encouragement and prayer...
