My Call Is to Be Faithful

My Call Is to Be Faithful

For as long as I can remember, people have asked me one variation or another of the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Well, guess what? I’m twenty-one now. I’m a legal adult, and I’m not pursuing any career that I dreamed of doing as a child. I’m not in college either; in fact, I haven’t been in any formal classroom since age fourteen. The truth is that I spend the majority of my time in bed battling severe chronic illnesses and have lived a life of suffering from nausea, headaches, brain fog, fatigue, and pain, along with dozens of other symptoms, for over seven years.

Hi, Pastor Wilson,

Thanks for reading my article and for leaving a comment! I am not familiar with Kate Bowler, but I just opened up her website in a new tab and will look at it more later. Thanks for the recommendation!

Just read this and appreciate it very much. Both moving and inspiring…and accurate! Thanks!
Wondering if you have ever read or listened to Kate Bowler ( Can’t say her theology is always what we might want, but she has also been living with illness and has, I think, helpful insights and perspectives. There seems to be a wisdom that comes from Christians with chronic illness that you share.
