When I watched this yesterday, it deeply impacted me. Not exactly a sermon, it’s more an interview in which a woman tells her remarkable story of dealing with tragedy, suffering, and disability. Yes, the pastor had things to say — in a rather powerful mini-sermon that served as introduction — and her husband spoke as well, but it was her words I found especially compelling.
If you’ve ever asked, “Why did God allow this to happen?” you might not find the exact answer to your question, but I think you will find hope.

This is hugely powerful. Read her story first. Then watch the video.
If you struggle finding the words to express your own trauma…if you are trying to find your voice…watch the video. It’s heartbreaking, but will give you hope.
From this morning’s devotional reading
On a good day, I read from several different “devotions” that are connected with one of the Bible apps I use. Today, I found one quote in particular encouraging and apropos. Lately I’ve been attempting to clean up messes — literal and metaphorical — and feeling overwhelmed. If that’s you too, check out the link.
