God Never Wastes Pain
Whatever you’re going through, Christ sees the purpose beyond your here and now.
In 2005 He arranged my friendship with a young wife and mother who was dying of stage four lung cancer. Chantale invited me into her world for regular visits. I was nervous because I didn’t know what to say, but God reminded me of my gift to write poetry. When Chantale said it brought her peace, I kept writing these home and hospice-delivered gifts.
What started as poetry in obscurity has become a faith-building gift book. Because God never wastes pain, A Friend in the Storm releases with Zondervan in mid-August.
Perhaps you or a loved one are in the midst of an impossible storm, and you’re wondering why a good and loving God would allow this crazy thing to happen.
We don’t know all the answers, but we know that God is love.
For a short while it looked like Jesus was defeated. Death had won the battle. The disciples were disillusioned and afraid.
Three days later, everything changed.
“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18
Dance of Comfort
Just as My arm sweeps over yours,
My strength in you, to others, pours.
My truth in you now long declares,
your love loves stronger while it shares…
A prayer, a touch, a simple smile
reveals My Presence every mile.
There’s always something you can do,
when prayer makes waves ahead of you.
