No one wishes for crises, but Christians who’ve endured them often speak of the faith benefits that result. Here are two examples:
Author and Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie, who lost two babies to a rare genetic disorder, writes: “Trusting God when the miracle does not come, when the urgent prayer gets no answer, when there is only darkness – this is the kind of faith that cannot be shaken because it is the result of having been shaken” (Holding On to Hope, Tyndale).
Christian musician Danny Gokey, whose first wife died from congenital heart disease, writes: “Sometimes we don’t discover our purpose until the darkest moments strip us of everything and all we are left with is brokenness and heartache. It is in these moments, ironically, when hope becomes our strength and carries.”
We will gather this offering on June 11 and 12.
Consider it prayerfully and give generously.
