Quote of the Day – Purpose of Pain  

California 204

“I also found joy, simply because I had embraced His will for my life. And what is His will? That you and I be in the best position, the best place, the timeliest circumstance in which God can be glorified the most. For me, that place just happens to be a wheelchair. That happens to be my place of healing.”

Joni Eareckson Tada – A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain, and God’s Sovereignty. 

Seeking to glorify God in my day-to-day, even when it involves unrelenting chronic pain. Struggling to know and pursue His will, even when it conflicts with my personal, temporal happiness. Holding on to a real hope that my life does have meaning, it does have purpose, it does have value when I align myself with Christ and His will. Granting myself grace in figuring out the details.
