30 comforting quotes to read during sickness.

 


There are times when our lives and the lives of our loved ones take an unexpected turn. Sickness isn't something that we would gladly welcome into our lives but the reality is that anyone at any time can become sick. Even those who appear to be fit and healthy. In these debilitating moments, there's still hope. Hope that we'll get better. Hope that our loved ones will get better. Hope that our pain and suffering will end. These waiting moments can be lonely, stressful, and depressing at times. It gets even worse with financial constraints. The psychological effects of not having the funds to purchase much-needed medication or cover a life-saving surgery are a nightmare. It's a whole different level of frustration! While we can relate to pain. We can never truly feel the agony that a person endures when they are ill. We may express our deepest sympathies, but only the person who is sick knows what they are going through. May God give you the strength to overcome whatever sickness you may be battling right now.  Below I've compiled 30 comforting quotes with the hope that they'll encourage someone in this difficult stage of life.
