Mom and Dad, why am I going through this?

Posted on 6/25/2019 by Greg Yoder

How many of us watch our kids suffer? Whether it’s physical, relationship, emotional, or mental pain it’s excruciating to stand by helplessly watching them go through it no matter their age. Someone’s daughter is going through some significant health issues. Her mother said, “I don’t know what I’ll do if something happens to her, I’m so scared.” James told us to expect it saying “WHEN you go through various trials,” not if. Pastor John MacArthur says trails come to test our faith, make us humble, and wean us from worldly things. Do we look at trials with that in mind? I know I don’t. But as we grow in Christ, we can’t help but understand God uses all things for His good – which is ultimately OUR good. 

Suggested Reading: Romans 5:3-4 James 1:2-4
