So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.
– 2 Corinthians 5:16
It’s all just too much, isn’t it? It grows more so over time, too.
When we first get sick, everyone’s alarm bells go off. People rush in, surround us, pitch in, get on board. They call to check and bring in meals and pray for relief. They reach out and cover over and hug us close.
But as chronic illness stays, well… chronic… people start to slip away. Or maybe they’re still somewhere along the perimeter, but they have a life, too, and we just become too high-maintenance. Calls become less frequent. Prayers dwindle as the realization comes that no drastic, miraculous answers are right on the horizon.
We can become so hardened. We begin to expect this type of reaction, waiting for it instead of being surprised by it.
And many times I think this spills over onto our Savior.
