How do you view your struggles and difficulties in life? Do you view them like an annoyance or something you have to go through? Or do you view them as a way to grow deeper in your faith? Or can we take it one step further – do you view your difficulties and struggles as a way to reflect God’s glory? These are hard questions, but they are good ones to ponder.
I am so excited to have Jenny Harmon on the podcast this week. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis almost 19 years ago and she is going to take us through her journey. This month, September, is National Pain Awareness month and I know many like Jenny are experiencing chronic pain. I just love the perspective and wisdom that Jenny shares this episode. I know it offered me so much hope. If you are walking through something difficult, I know her words will encourage you too!
