“They will stare at the one they pierced.” John 19:37. To better understand how to respond to suffering, look at Jesus’ response while on the cross. He wasn’t full of anger at those inflicting pain. Neither was He full of questions to the One allowing the pain. He looked to see what He could provide. He gave something at a time when others didn’t think He had anything else to offer. Jesus looked at those around Him with compassion and asked they be forgiven. Now look around and see what you can do for others while you’re suffering.

- Heart Trouble
- No Questions Asked
- No one is greater than their prayer life. If your prayers are serious to God, then they should be more significant to you. One of the greatest tragedies of life is when prayers go unanswered because they go unasked. Remember: The size of your prayers depend upon the size of your God.
- Quit talking to God about your mountain and start talking to your mountain about God
