From: Luke 12:13-21 (ESV) The Parable of the Rich Fool
. . . “The land of a rich man produced plentifully, 17 and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 18 And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.”’ 20 But God said to him, ‘Fool!

A long struggle with an illness or injury may afford
. . . ample time to prepare for our demise, but what if we fall victim to a violent death: accident, natural disaster, explosion or even at the hands of another? Would you be confident of your eternal future? Sometime in this world GOD allows a physical struggle because our response can illustrate to others our faith. We are in this world but not of this world; we in our own abilities cannot correct the evil and the wrongs; only GOD can. We can demonstrate GOD’s Love and teach others to share the hope we have and, the assured eternal salvation.
Apostle Paul (ST Paul) atests to this condition:
So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited.
As a Christian we believe Jesus and know what our eternity will be like and where.
John 14:3 ESV
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
If you have any doubt accept Jesus as your Lord and savior . . . if you need help seek it from a believer . . . a christian.
Church revival and church growth starts with you and, you will make a difference in a troubled world if you do so, by demonstrating love and good to a troubled world.
