He Will Strengthen and Bless

"In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation." ~1 Peter 5:10 NLT

This pattern has held true in my life . . . and let me just say: the restoration, support, strength and surety He gives absolutely dwarfs into insignificance any suffering I have ever done. 

He is faithful. Always!

  1. Perfect timing! A loved one is approaching the end of a 13 year journey of suffering from disease. Already I can see their suffering was perfect for their spiritual needs and that they will forget the suffering as they are lost in the raptures of joy that await them on the other side.

I welcome questions and concerns--they are most often what spur us closer to the truth. I only ask that we all give everyone the most generous benefit of the doubt, assigning the best motives possible. A soft answer truly does turn away wrath, and an atmosphere of Jesus's love is the best for learning, no matter which side of a discussion you're on.

Thanks so much, and God bless you!
