Compassion matters to God. This is a time for service, not being self-centered. Cancel the pity party. Instead, love the people God brings to you. This test will be your testimony. Second Corinthians 1:4 reminds us, “God comes along side us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, He brings us along side someone else who’s going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us” (MSG).
You didn’t sign up for this crash course in single parenting or caring for a disabled spouse, did you? No. God enrolled you. Why? So you can teach others what He has taught you. Rather than say, “God, why?” ask, “God, what?” What can I learn from this experience?
Your mess can become His message!
