‘Your Suffering Is Never for Nothing’ – Christian Article

It’s only in the cross that we can begin to harmonize the seeming contradiction between suffering and love. And we will never understand suffering unless we understand the love of God. We’re talking about two different levels on which things are to be understood. And again and again in the Scriptures we have what seem to be complete paradoxes because we’re talking about two different kingdoms.

What to Expect When You’re Surprised You’re Expecting – Christian Article

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. (Ps. 127:3) Between deep breaths and tears, I mentally quoted this verse as I stared at the pink plus sign that had ominously appeared on the pregnancy test in my hand.

Go Unsatisfied | Klamath Falls Christian Counseling – Christian Article

Your Tears Are Not in Vain – Christian Article

Last week, I wrote about how I became a daddy. I have a son now and I’m in full swing on the dad life. I love it and I love to see him happy. But I hate to see him cry. Call me a newbie, but I’m just not used to all the crying. When he cries, I hurt for him. I want to help. I know I can. But sometimes, I know his tears are necessary. Take, for example,…
