Two Options

The blind see. The lame walk. The lepers are cleansed. The deaf hear. The dead are raised. The poor have the gospel preached to them. (Luke 7:22)

Notice they had to first be blind, handicapped, suffering from leprosy, deaf, dead and poor before the healing came. Without a significant amount of suffering and pain, Jesus had nothing to free them from.


Pain. You have two options for dealing with it.

1. Give up.
2. Grow.

"Pain often plays an important role in God's plan. Unfortunately there is no other experience that equals it's ability to grasp and focus our attention."

Shut off your phone. Shut the door. Shut your mouth.

Settle down. Sit down.

No to-do list. No mindless entertainment.

Just listen up.

What if God has something to tell you?
