I have found Americans reticent about “having a go.” If they can’t do it well, they won’t do it at all. It takes the grace of God to “have a go” at a spiritual challenge that seems totally beyond us. I have found, however, that in trying to meet needs that I have felt I was not qualified to meet, I have had to depend more on God.
It’s the BIG question we all ask, isn’t it? Why am I here? What is my purpose? Author, speaker, women’s ministry consultant, JBU Advisory Board member and bible study teacher Susan Lawrence has been grappling with these
questions for years. “We all want our purpose to be spelled out like a job description”, says Susan, “but God usually has other plans!”
So what do we do with the suffering of the world? We don’t turn away and avoid the pain; we enter into it. Whether it’s our loved ones facing crisis or people thousands of miles away living in horrendous conditions, the truth is the same. The cross is enough. Jesus is sufficient and His love never fails.
