The Glory of God in the Gift of Disability
If you have known me for very long you know that I have never felt that anyone should have to “re-invent the wheel.” I believe that God designed us for relationships and that we are to learn from each other. Out of God’s grace He has enabled me access to wonderful people and written or recorded words. It is my desire to share them to all those in my world.
The above attached link is one such thing I came across while actually researching something entirely different. We know several families with family members with physical or mental disabilities. We have learned much from all of them. Pastor John Piper spoke to this tough issue. Sometimes people struggle with understanding a God who loves us but doesn’t “fix” everything the way we believe it ought to be “fixed.” From the first day of our son-in-law’s diagnosis of untreatable cancer we all knew our God could heal him. He (our son-in-law) was the first to say, “I will be healed either here on earth or in heaven”. God was glorified in Mark’s life and in his death as he died fully trusting that God’s will was being done.
I’ve not read this couple’s book therefore I can’t endorse it personally but their video and this blog post spoke volumes.
