Losing a child is nine parts unthinkably horrible, and one part gift.
The secret to surviving is in finding the gift.—D. Steel
God has said that he wants to develop in our hearts greater depth of character and spiritual understanding through our trials. Is this not the gift?
The challenge to my survival has been seeing the value of this gift in the midst of all the heartache endured.
In many ways, is this not the challenge for all of us?…allowing God’s greater purpose for our lives to be received as a valuable gift in our pain.
Lord, please help me to see and experience your gift!
