To Suffer


I’ve been dealing with some health issues lately.

And quite frankly, I’m tired of it.

I’m ready for it to all be done with so I can be 100% again.

But here are a couple things I’ve been reminded:

1. To be thankful since there’s always someone worse off than me.

2. God is fully present to lift up in all of it, (especially) in suffering.

Romans 5:3-4 ESV “...but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope

The poem shared is from my book “Creatures Called Stories”.

May it’s words and the scripture above speak hope into those suffering through anything today.
