A Post with a Request

To me, MS= a way for God to show his glory through my physical struggles

Today, I read this blog post that my aunt posted.  She works at the Multiple Sclerosis society in Kansas, where she and her family live.  It makes me full of hope at the compassion people like her have and how couples are dealing with the unpredictable disease together.  I was then thinking about the MS chapter where I live.  At this time in my life, I feel alone with it.  My cousin was diagnosed years after me, but I feel like my struggles and my age kind of isolate me.  I don’t know other people like me.  I have been online to a few places where I can meet others with MS, but they are depressed and speak in a depressing way.  I have talked to still more who seem to glorify themselves by being over-involved in everything they can be to raise money and awareness of the disease.  Is there anyone like me?  There’s gotta be.  Younger women who love Jesus and are dealing with MS by His power?  I would love to start a Facebook group or something for others like me, but I can’t find them.  This post is a little bit different than ones I normally post.  I was talking to my mom about this and tears came to my eyes.  I have been praying that the Lord break my heart for a people group and to lead me to a ministry, but I can’t do so by myself.  The need for the strength and saving grace of the Lord is apparent in the community of many who are stuck in their struggles.  I know there are people who are living normally with the disease who love Jesus.  Do they struggle within themselves?  I would love to round up enough people, wherever they’re at, for an online community of support and faith.  Could you help me?
