Wow. Powerful words, right? So often when we find ourselves in a place of pain or feel powerless, we don’t ask the question, “What can I learn from this situation?” Yet, there is so much wisdom to be gained from that position of humility.
10 years ago I sat in a dark room with the glow of a still ultrasound monitor projecting my changed reality—The baby I planned to give birth to in 3 weeks would not arrive in the way I had envisioned.
This began a new opportunity to lean into pain and ask the hard questions, “God, what can I learn from this?”
The answers came. Not answers to why our sweet Saywer died, but the answers of what we could learn. They continue to come even now, 10 years later.
Friends, there are many questions we will never know the answers to in this broken world, but I have learned that God will never fail to redeem and restore His broken children. And I have also learned, that there is still so. much. more. to. learn.
What are you learning today?
