I would like to commend this article by Shane Clifton to read. I have shared about Shane in previous posts and am encouraged by his faith in the face of unimaginable hardship.
While I know Shane most likely doesn’t consider himself to be a man of faith at this point in time, and is riddled with fears, doubts, tears and sorrows. I want to say that faith is never the absence of fear, doubts, tears and sorrows; rather faith is what causes us to continue the journey of life within the framework of doubts, fears, tears and sorrows.
Shane I pray that the Lord will restore within you a sense of real joy and peace within the midst of this terrible hardship.
