In episode 109, we meet the guest who was the catalyst for this entire series (without knowing it.) Andy Hale shares the story of how he not only nearly lost his vision, but potentially his eyes, and how God brought healing. In actuality, the conversation goes much deeper. On several occasions, Andy acknowledges that he knew God would work things out, even if it wasn't in the way he wanted, and he can now see the blessings that resulted from the suffering. This begs the question: if God can work through suffering, what should our relationship with suffering be? It clearly isn't to avoid it, but it couldn't be to pursue it, right? And if we are seeking intentionality, how do we muster the clarity of mind when the pain is too distracting.
How have you seen God use suffering for "abundantly more"?
