Here’s your 15 seconds of inspiration,
your Tuesday Tidbit:
“Often we discover the joy in the midst of the sorrow.
I remember the most painful times of my life
as times in which I became aware
of a spiritual reality much larger than myself,
a reality that allowed me to live the pain with hope.
I dare even to say:
‘My grief was the place where I found my joy.’”
In taking time to reflect on your life, have you, too, discovered joy in the midst of your sorrow?
Did God help you live with pain and hope at the same time?
Perhaps you, like Henri Nouwen, can say, “My grief was the place where I found my joy.”
Make time to think about Henri’s words
and then write your story.
Your story matters.
Your words are important.
Someone grieving needs to know your story
and grasp hold of hope.
