I sat in the audience as Joni Eareckson Tada gave this talk to the 2013 National Religious Broadcasters.

Her words completely changed my perspective and mood that night. I walked in grumbling the hard week I experienced . . . and I left filled with gratitude for God.

Watch her video and you’ll understand why. Incredible.

God permits what He hates to accomplish that which He loves.

A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain, and God's SovereigntyJust this week I finished reading Joni’s book, A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain, and God’s Sovereignty.

Believe me, if you’d like some encouragement in the midst of your pain, this book will show you how to view your struggles with the joy only God provides.

Tell me what you think: What has your suffering taught you that you would have learned no other way? To leave a comment, just click here.
