Accept Suffering


What if you’ve asked God for healing, you’re cooperating with doctors, you’re reading your Bible, and you are still in pain and struggling?

Could this season of perseverance have purpose beyond what our human minds can fathom? I think so.

If God’s ways are not our ways, maybe what we view as a curse that plagues us might actually be a blessing that prepares us for our purpose and eternity. ——— 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝 𝐭𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬 𝐮𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐬𝐮𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐆𝐨𝐝 𝐭𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐇𝐢𝐦

2 𝘊𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘢𝘯𝘴‬ ‭12:9-10‬ ‭ ——— Today’s thought: If mental illness in a Christian woman helps her humbly rely on God in her weakness, providing a platform for others to see God’s power through her, then could it be considered a gift?


Acceptance of suffering and God’s sovereignty

is a faith fortifying force when we can’t understand His ways.
