What happens when dawn tarries?

Last week's episode discussed finding hope in trials and how God can heal. In this episode, I want to return to the idea of suffering and explore the question of what happens when you aren't healed and live with chronic pain or suffering with Karis Meier, author of 'Suffering Redeemed.' She shares her journey of living with chronic illness and finding joy and beauty amid suffering. We discuss the importance of vulnerability, receiving from God, and surrendering to His will. Karis encourages listeners to embrace the mystery of suffering and to focus on God's faithfulness and love. The conversation highlights the importance of faith and trust in God's plan, even when we don't understand it.

Highlights and takeaways from the conversation:

  • Chronic pain and suffering can be a long and challenging journey, but it is possible to find joy and beauty in the midst of it.
  • Vulnerability and receiving from God are key in navigating the challenges of chronic illness and suffering.
  • Surrendering to God's will and having faith in His plan can bring peace and hope amid suffering.
  • Looking back on God's faithfulness and the growth that comes from suffering can provide encouragement and perspective.
