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 seem 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.
