Our life events and situations have one purpose in their design: that we would come to know our God in a deep and meaningful way.
Henri Nouwen was a beautiful spiritual man who couldn’t get beyond his own wounds. So God called him out of his woundedness to focus on another's life.
God has led me to again return to a limited carb diet and to incorporate intermittent fasting as a lifestyle. This journey's become one of loving myself.

When we hear that someone we love is unwell, how many of you (like me!) tend to immediately pray for healing and just assume that God blesses that prayer?
I wanted to share another example, one about my own health crisis rather than one I merely witnessed.
