Suffer Well

Have you ever

wondered

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

believe

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}
