4. When you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired

As a child, she watched her dad come to the brink of death due to a rare liver disease. As a teen, she received the same diagnosis. My sweet friend, Ashley Traficant, shares her battle with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), 2 liver transplants, and how to hold onto hope even amidst the darkest seasons of life.

 In this episode, we discuss:

  • How do you hold onto hope when you are physically drowning in sickness, pain, and ultimately dying?
  • How do you continue to live with purpose when it feels like your life has been put on pause, while the rest of the world carries on?
  • What do you say to the person who doesn’t feel God, doesn’t see Him, or doesn’t even believe He’s near?
  • Scripture tells us that the hope of the Lord doesn’t disappoint, but didn’t you experience a lot of disappointment?
  • What scripture did you cling to during these painful seasons?
  • How can I be a good friend to someone struggling with a chronic or deadly illness?
  • What encouragement do you have for the person who feels like their life is on pause or is experiencing physical suffering?

Scripture Mentioned:

  • Romans 5:3-5
  • Psalm 42
  • 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
  • Psalm 27:13-14
