Suffer Well

Have you ever


why God allows suffering?


We pray and ask and beg Him to stop the suffering

to heal us.

and sometimes He does.



Other times He lets it linger

at tipping point, or

worsen, even.




Could it be

He speaks to others

through our suffering?



That He knows

one thing we all share

is suffering, and


how we respond to healing

or not healing

is what matters most?



If we suffer well?



If we hope and


that healing is coming

no matter when it comes


could that be

the true test?


Are you thankful for learning how to suffer?


{But as for me I will always have hope; I will praise You more and more….

Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter,

You will restore my life again;

from the depths of the earth

You will again bring me up.

You will increase my honor

and comfort me once again.

–Psalm 71:14, 20-21}
