How Mary’s Sorrows Show Us the Path to Healing
There were troubling times in my life when I felt/knew Jesus was walking hand and hand with me through it all. He didn't take the troubles away. He walked with me, and I felt safe and loved through it all and hope was there. I won't claim I have always felt His loving presence, but when I didn't its becaused I blocked it by not being open to the Lord. He never fails us. We just block what Jesus doing for us.
I sometimes struggle in faith when I suffer. It's hard to understand how God can allow some kinds of suffering in our lives. In the end, however, the only way to suffer is to still cling on to God. With God, we don't suffer in vain. With God, we still find hope.
