I believe 100% that being sick, whether it be lyme disease or any other health condition, changes a Christian’s relationship with God. It’s not that it diminishes it or destroys it. On the contrary, this severe testing and pain often brings people closer to God in a more real and raw way. Check out our Bible studies for a look at God’s Word from the perspective of someone who is suffering pain and illness. We are currently going through the epistle of 1 Peter.
