A True Inspiration

For the next 15 or so days, me and a couple other girls are going on a fast for our dear friend, Chelsea. She was diagnosed with CRPS, which is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. I am not 100% sure what it is exactly, I am pretty sure it is injury to nerves and it messes with her arm and now has moved up into her shoulder, but I also know it made our friend move away from K-State for this semester and I am not ok with that. ;) I also know that Chelsea is one of the strongest people you will ever be fortunate enough to know. She is in such pain, but if you were to talk to her, you would never know it! She has really given this to God and by showing that, it is such a testimony to everyone! She has the best attitude of anyone who is struggling with something like this. She just got put on a gluten free, sugar free and dairy free diet, so a couple of us are fasting from one of those things in support of her. Chelsea, if you read this, thank you for being such an inspiration to everyone! You are truly amazing and I am so truly lucky that I get to call you my friend! Love you girl!

I think this verse fits you perfectly my friend:
Joshua 1:9
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
(That is exactly what you are! Strong AND courageous!)
