This was shared in our Bible Study tonight.

Suffering is not a sign of God's displeasure with you. Suffering often indicates that God is setting us free from something so that we can follow and embrace him more deeply. God wants to teach us how to walk with him through these things so we can know a joy and peace that transcends circumstance.


  1. I have to admit, though....I hate the thought of Matthew having to die to teach me something-even if it is greater reliance on God.

    I'm working hard to count that as joy...not there yet.

  2. Wishing there was no such "lesson". Working hard also, like Lori above :) Hugs to you Amanda xxx

  3. I'm praying that I find that peace that surpasses circumstances, it's so hard to get there. Thanks for sharing.

    Hope that you are well and sending you a HUG.
