    Amen. To know Him, the power of the resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death .

    I read this and thought, “He has the right name, all he needs are the big bushy eyebrows”.
    High praise, indeed…

    good topic to think on… God allows His children to experience both and for a variety of reasons…
    when it comes to raising children – as humans our instinct is to shelter our children, but…
    how much pain and suffering is a learning experience? when to intervene? i’m not very good at this…

    Hey, Michael: I feel for you. I have also had deep chronic pain that didn’t allow me to walk or even move some days. I have gotten past that now and have entered a new stage of suffering as it seems that suffering is sometimes what God uses to temper and mature us. I want to resist it, but there is no resisting. I guess I will walk through it and see what I have become when I come out the other side. But in the midst of it, God is still good. He still provides. He still loves and touches.
