Remembering the mystery of God's Providence redirects our attention from why to God. Though we seek comfort in answers to our question of why we suffer, God brings us comfort by answering the question of who is working mysteriously in our suffering.
The above is from J. Ligon Duncan's unsurpassed little tome, Does Grace Grow Best in Winter?. This is must read for all of us. We will go through trial or suffering at some point in this life. We need to be ready and we need to be ready to help those in need around us. I can't recommend this read enough. I earnestly agree with C. J. Mahaney's endorsement of the book in which he states, If you are presently suffering, this book is for you. And if you are not, this book is still for you.
