The Only Way I Know To Get Through My Most Difficult Days

It is one of the most difficult things I know…

Watching your child suffer.

For my boys, this happens daily, in one way or another.

Crippling Joint Pain

Deep Depression

Social Misunderstandings and Backlash

Overwhelming Anxiety

Vomiting and Diarrhea

Extreme Fatigue

Every single day has some combination of these and on the worst days, every single one rears its ugly head.

The Worst Days

Seeing your child in intense physical and psychological pain, with no real solution or time frame for healing, brings a type of terror to motherhood that I wouldn’t wish on anyone. It’s a living nightmare.

I wake each morning with a crushing realization that we will need to live through another day of panic attacks, vomiting, unremitting pain, and meltdowns.

Most of the time, I am not sure what day it is.

The Only Way I Know To Get Through My Most Difficult Days

On the worst days, I am acutely aware of how much loss there is, this side of heaven. The only original prayer I can utter sometimes is, “Please, help my baby.”

The Only Way I Know To Get Through The Most Difficult Days

I have shared before that are several bible verses that stay with me, day and night. They float in and out of my consciousness, tucked away, ready to remind me, to encourage me and to strengthen me.

I am so grateful for these verses. They are the most practical way I know to survive what feels not survivable. In an effort to keep these verses present throughout my days, and hopefully also help to encourage you, I have created a small set of printables.

These designs have the seven verses I find to be most helpful in the worst seasons and on my most difficult days.

I chose seven verses – one for every day of the week.

Simple. Hopeful. Essential for those days that feel insurmountable.

These are my gift to you.

(Please know, if you have previously signed up to receive emails and special gifts from Shawna, you do not need to fill this out again. In fact, your gift of these 7 verses has already been sent to you and should be waiting in your inbox.)
