Over the past 5 years being diagnosed with NF2 friends have come to me and been like “how do you deal with this every day and knowing what’s down the road for you. I can’t imagine what it would be like.”
The answer is without the suffering I have gone thru I would not get to experience the closeness of Jesus like I have. My suffering is very minor compared to many people and very minor compared to those referred to in this video, but I so connect with this because I’ve found this message so true in my own life to the point sometimes I almost wish for suffering because that’s where I really experience my relationship with Jesus to the fullest.
So I’m not suffering in a “persecuted” way to speak but I really think this message rings true for any suffering.
(You’ll need to listen to this video to see what message I’m referring to)
I would highly recommend watching this video by Francis Chan!
