Where is your focus when your life feels barren?
As a child, I never imagined that one day, I would suffer from chronic pain. I thought I would remain healthy forever. But sometimes, life takes a detour.
I know all of the correct answers: “He uses our suffering for His glory,” “it’s so that others will come to know God,” or “God has a bigger plan.” But none of these answers are enough.
God does not leave us empty handed on the road of suffering. He will send us reminders of His faithfulness and presence. But we need to have our eyes open to see them.
