Suffering is meaningful

My heart is breaking for some friends that are suffering. And in the midst of it all I am thankful that Jesus is who he is and he is enough for me and for them.

John Piper says it this way: "A Christian’s suffering is never meaningless." It is a message all through Scripture, God uses trials and suffering to change and empower us. It is not an easy message but one that is true.

You're enough for me
You're enough for me


Rest in that truth.
