I’d do anything to take away her pain.

Posted on 1/6/2017 by Greg Yoder

The week after Christmas my 17-year-old daughter suffered from the most painful sickness I’ve ever seen. It started off as a stomach bug, which went into her back, neck, and head. She wasn’t only throwing up and other things; she just ached all over. We took her to the ER three times and went to the doctor’s office once—all in a four-day period. She couldn’t even lay down without experiencing pain. How do we help our kids as they go through something like this? I reminded her of God’s amazing grace. I told her God wasn’t surprised by it and that He would use it in her life. Later, Anastasia wrote on her Facebook page, “No matter how much pain I am in, God never leaves me and I am truly grateful for that.” And I’m grateful for those words. 

Suggested Reading: Deuteronomy 31:6
