Lord, I don’t understand!

When my wife Linda was diagnosed with severely degenerating disc disease in her neck and spine life changed for us overnight. If you had the same thing happen with the onset of chronic illness you will know what I mean. The natural mind thought, Father, We have been pastoring churches for over 40 years, sought to be obedient to your Word so we don’t understand why this happened. Have we sinned against you? In searching our minds and hearts it became clear we could become angry at the Lord for bringing this illness upon us, or press into the Lord, “Come near to the Lord, and He will come near to you(James 4:8) Now life is daily transformed by His Presence.
