Trials Will Come

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love
him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

Life will eventually turn every person upside down, inside out. No
one is immune. Not the mom in the suburbs who finds out her teen-
age daughter is pregnant. Not the husband who is entangled in an
affair with a woman who is not his wife. Not the kid whose parents
are strung out on drugs. Not the girl entrenched in human traffick-

of those times. For thirty-three years I thought I was someone else,
and then, just like that, I discovered I was not who I thought I was.
But just as life will upend us, so will love.
God’s love, which knows us and claimed us before we were even
born, can take us beyond ourselves, as it did Jesus, who left heaven
to go to the cross and pass through the grave in order to bring us back
home. His love can bring us through emotional earthquakes. Love
like Christ’s can lift us out of betrayal and hurt. It can deliver us from
any mess. Love like that can release us from every prison of fear and
confusion. And love like God’s can fill us up till it spills out of us, and
we have to speak about it, share it, spread it around.
It was the assurance of this love that sustained me, strengthened
me, carried me, and kept me. Then and now. Lean into and receive
the unconditional, unfailing, indescribable love of our precious Sav-
ior. When all else is shaken and fails, Love never fails.
