God has a purpose for your pain!

When I read the verses below, I thought what a life of health issues my husband and I had experienced the past few years. I know we are no different than anyone else. The entire world is struggling with life’s storms. No matter what mountain of problems is before us, God is more sovereign than our circumstances. He has brought us through Covid, back surgery, broken wrist, cancer, kidney failure, heart stents, and a shattered knee. We know where our hope is. It is Jesus, the one that calms the stormy sea and brings us through victoriously.

“Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, So that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; So He guides them to their desired haven. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭107:28-31‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Gary has always said, “Karen, God will bring us through this, he always has and he always will.” I love that my husband’s faith is displayed in good times and in times of struggles. ❤️
