I talked to a friend recently about some serious health issues in her family. I realized at that moment, that the light of misfortune was now shining on someone other than me. While my heart goes out to my friend and her family, I feel relief at not having the heaviness of praying for that miracle for Steve. But, looking at her pain filled face I felt helpless at not knowing what to say or do.
Lord, don't let my experience of anguish be wasted in my life. Use it. Use me, to help others who feel their soul has been pierced beyond repair.
