Each Time Unbearable-Extraordinary

Each time an event which is almost unbearable occurs in our lives, we learn something extraordinary — we learn that we survive. And we discover a strength within us we might not have known before.

At least, this has been true for me.

The strength I have within is not my own. This strength comes from God, who lives within me. The odd thing is that, for me at least, I didn’t fully comprehend the extent of that strength until an almost unbearable event occurred. At this time, the crushing pain was overwhelming, but the strength within became apparent. Not immediately, but over time. And no, it was not that ‘time heals all wounds;’ rather, this strength grew from my reliance upon the truth that “for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28, ESV)

    My belief in this truth — that all things work together for good to those who are called according to the purposes of God — has been tested tonight. And, I find peace, the peace which does surpass all understanding. Thank You, Lord.
