Podcast 42: Our Redeemer Lives, Finding Hope – Part 5
God is good and God is our Redeemer. He works all things together for good, even our “light afflictions” as Paul calls them in 2 Corinthians 4:17. For our light affliction, which is for the moment, works for us.
In 1987, I was praying for God to fix Johnny, but God had other designs, and through John, He was fixing me. Or as Laura Story, in her song “Blessings” says:
‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise
And what if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise
Steve relates how God has used John to put like in perspective and teach them eternal truths about love and life.
