Thought for the week

It can be difficult to find God when we suffer or when our souls heave in pain. How often have our hearts and souls felt withered, scorched or burnt out from having the burdens and the desolation of life? How as Christians can we try to find meaning and hope in our suffering? How can we move from slavery to decadence? Never become dull of hearing or shut your eyes to the love of God. Try to love and understand God with your heart. The first steps are in being healed by a God who cares........
