Living Our Vocations as Lutheran Women
She needed to learn that her experience and feelings are not pieces of a puzzle that she can assemble to see whether or not God is good and loving.YES. Thank you for this extremely insightful post. I'll be sharing this with my readers at weakandloved.com.It is so tempting as a mama, to encourage our babies when they doubt by pointing them to OTHER circumstances (but you have a warm bed to sleep in, so see, God does love you!) But that strategy, even though there is truth in it, just keeps them stuck in the trap of looking to circumstances instead of to His Word for assurance of His love.
I wrote of a similar experience here:http://www.weakandloved.com/2011/01/get-well-soon.htmlThought you might enjoy it.
