Our all-loving God does not desire that we seek suffering to become holy, but he does desire that we surrender to him in our suffering so that in our brokenness, his mercy can make us whole again.

In being broken open by suffering, we are offered the opportunity to let those open spaces be filled with the mercy and compassion of our God, and in the depth of that mercy to be moved to love him more deeply.

Surrendering to suffering is the path we walk backwards through the pain of the fall toward the life of Eden.

Your brokenness is not the end but the start of a new greater beginning, it is an opportunity given by God to empty our-self of all kinds of Vail things and get them filled up in God’s mercy and love.
