Somehow God uses all the pain in our lives--when we let him--to create something beautiful. When we gather for worship, as we lay our heartaches and struggles before the Lord, he gathers up all that gunk, and through the cross, he redeems it. He shows us his strength. He brings glory to himself. He shares his goodness with us. And with his goodness comes healing, meaning, purpose and hope.
Not only is God good--he is better than we think.
