Only when

Only when we understand that God has ordained our suffering
can we begin to make sense of it.

Only then can we be certain that He has a purpose in it.
When tragedy comes, when adversity strikes,

we will not be shaken.
Yes, we will cry. Yes, we will grieve.
But we will move on confidently
knowing that God is on His throne,
that we are in His hand,
that our circumstances are His
and that He is working them for our good.”

~Terry L. Johnson, When Grace Comes Home
