Have you ever been pretty annoyed or irritated by an issue and you’re pretty sure that no one around you is comfortable either, but you all suppress the urge to address it? The more you suppress it the more it bugs you and consumes your thoughts, especially if you’re anywhere near it and the people involved… almost like there’s an elephant in the room.
There’s still time to join us in a location near you!
Longsuffering keeps us in truth without being burnt
When Faith Meets Suffering-Part 9
Thanks for joining us for When Faith Meets Suffering, Part 9. Again we want to emphasize that we realize Social Media is all about the “happy” side of life, and this may seem like a real bummer, but the author wants to share from the side of pain, because pain is a part of real life. On the other side, she knows in her bones that God will bring a victory from this season of suffering and will be just as transparent about the victory as she has been about the season of suffering.
In the days that followed, her joy decreased while her faith increased. Sometimes the pain was so strong, so overwhelming that she could touch it, like it was a person mocking and taunting her, daring her heart to continue to shatter.
She wasn’t one and still isn’t one to pretend things are going well when they’re not; perhaps that’s why she invited more into her circle of painful awareness. There were times she wanted to shout out to anyone and everyone about the injustice and betrayal of it all. Instead, she resorted to doing what she knew best…writing out her soul:
She had lost her smile
Days turned to nights
The “in-love” feeling of love
That was once in our life.
A marriage made out of glass
All their friends think they’re great
But He can see through it all
The truth’s about to break...
Thanks for joining me in this painful journey; I can’t wait to share the victory with you that I know is coming and backed by His Word!
