“Why me?” – confronting a rare medical condition and trusting the God who satisfies
Naomi was born with a rare medical condition. Doctors questioned her quality of life, and she began to struggle with how different she was from everyone else, and doubt her purpose in life. Why had God allowed her to be born like this?
Over time, “why me?” questions were replaced with finding strength in God, not herself. Naomi doesn’t have all the answers, but she does trust that God has made her as he intended, and he does have a purpose.
Naomi has learnt that ultimate satisfaction doesn’t come through playing sport or having perfect health, but in knowing that Jesus has died for her sins on the cross, and she is forgiven.
Why do you think knowing you’re forgiven makes such a difference?
Do you think that God has a purpose in your life?
