Quote of the day: In pain, God gives more

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing quotes that have slowed me down and made me think. This one’s from Nightbirde, who died from cancer in March this year: “When it comes to pain, God isn’t often in the business of taking it away. Instead, he adds to it. He is more of a giver than a taker. He doesn’t take away my darkness, he adds light. He doesn’t spare me of thirst, he brings water. He doesn’t cure my loneliness, he comes near. So why do we believe that when we are in pain, it must mean God is far?” May you be reminded today that God is near you in your pain. He is there to shine his light into all the dark spaces. Ask him for help to see how he’s working. Right here, right now. God bless, Ali
