Recently watching my mother suffer in death, it makes me wonder what she was learning. Many times she would cry out, "Why am I going through this?" In the end I don't doubt that she received the answers she was looking for.
I add my witness that some of our greatest strength and understanding come through enduring hard things. Growth comes as we turn to God in times of trial. He always blesses our lives and brings comfort, insight, peace, and joy.
