  1. Lauren, I cannot even begin to imagine the struggle you are facing, and the claustrophobia of life in a body that does not cooperate with your plans and goals. Thank you for being a living example of Paul’s words that we comfort others from the comfort we have received from God.
    Blessings to you as you live in this abundance.

  2. I needed to hear this. I’m having a hard time and feel like I have hit rock bottom. And there in the depths of your own darkness our loving God will not let us be. I am grateful for his patience and ever lasting kindness and more often than not feel tired and weary from day to day things. He is the rock and he is always there ready to lift us up!

  3. Father, Bless Lauren today for being Your blessing to so many others… strengthen her body, continue to strengthen her spirit as she rests in You… thank You Father, for being our Great Physician, our sustainer… in Jesus’ name…

  4. What great encouragement!! Jesus is always so tender and gentle with us in our doubts, continuing to woo us to trust Him.

  5. I really like this wonderful book by Lauren Gaskill. It is also a great gift for others – Christmas is coming – or as a birthday present.

  6. Lauren, what a joy it is to have your words here on (in)courage today. Your faith is inspiring! I know God is your strength, your portion, your joy. Your words help buoy us all up with encouragement to keep reaching out to the One who saves. xx

  7. My heart and soul resonate with every word here, Lauren. Ever grateful to the dear One who buoys us over the waves in His strength and His comfort and His peace. “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair…struck down, but not destroyed.” He is so faithful!! The Lord Jehovah Rapha bless you richly today.

  8. You are a fighter. Not because of who you are but Whose you are. You encourage and instill hope as you allow your journey to be a tool in the Father’s hand. I appreciate and thank you for allowing Christ to speak to my heart and that of others through your life. You are a true blessing Lauren and a wonderful inspiration

  9. Lauren, I am sorry to hear how much pain you are going through. You are right, God’s got this and he will bring you some healing. We just need to trust Him especially when it is hard. Praying for you and sending you love and know that you will find joy again. Thank you for sharing.

  10. Lauren.

    In this sinful fallen world we will have struggles some big & small. It is so hard to understand why some go through trials unscathed & others have many issues. Why must some suffer so much & others go through life intact. I can;t comprehend the immense pains & battles you face daily. You are a gem to those suffering with chronic pain. Thank you for spreading the news & being a living example of Jesus. God bless you for pointing everyone to Jesus their only hope. The journey of faith may be full of unknowns, but with Jesus, you’ll discover that though the waters rage, you will always rise above. Yes!!! We can rise above our circumstances & be overcomers!

    Blessings 🙂
