(Sometimes you walk through the dark valley of suffering… Sometimes, it’s covered with rocks, cold, and windy and dark, but how can a Christian have hope and even JOY in the midst of this suffering?)
Thank you Katie for letting us share thoughts and happenings on this Marvelous Monday!
Suffering. I’m thinking about suffering, particularly in terms of the suffering that was part and parcel of recovery, and I want to share why and how I am learning that suffering isn’t pointless, and in fact, you can even REJOICE and be EXCEEDING glad because of it.
Suffering is a part of every person’s life whether you are rich or poor, living in America, Europe, Africa, Asia, or _____ (fill in the blank.) As human beings we experience suffering everyday. We have mental, physical, emotional, spiritual suffering, and the best thing isn’t to ‘ignore it’ but rather to confront it and ask, ‘Why am I suffering, and what does it all mean?’
