I have been thinking about this for quite some time. It all began when I watched the movie “The Nativity Story”. I suddenly saw the Christmas Story in a whole new way. I saw it through the prism of suffering. Perhaps it is because it has been such a part of my life in recent years. Or perhaps it is because I know the Lord is teaching me something as I walk through this season of my life. I know He is teaching me because, as is always the case when He is working something within my heart, it is there at every turn. It is the whole thrust of the devotional book I have been using this year, I have heard it taught often and in various places, and the other day I saw it on someone’s blog – this question of the purpose of suffering.
The rest of this devotional is at Laced With Grace (tuesday - Dec. 11th). I will meet you there.
