Pain and God’s Presence

I am not a theologian or a scholar, but I am very aware of the fact that pain is necessary to all of us. In my own life, I think I can honestly say that out of the deepest pain has come the strongest conviction of the presence of God and the love of God.

—Elisabeth Elliot

My prayer this week: In my moments of struggle and pain, I ask you to draw near to me, dear Lord. Surround me with your love. Heal my body and my soul. And fill my mind with peace.
