I would guess that all of us at one time or another has felt the crushing weight of affliction, trouble, and loss. It can come to the point of utter devastation when death sounds like a good idea… and frankly, the only way out. But it’s at that point, when we are at the end of ourselves, that God reaches down. When all we can see is blackness… He will bring light and clarity. When all we can feel is despair…He will bring hope and promise. So when suffering overwhelms and suffocates you, remember… God is there.
