This morning I read a quote that said, “The way through the pain is to reach out to others in theirs.”  Can putting aside my selfish pity and turning my eyes to others in their plight really restore my broken heart?  Will He truly bind up my wounds?  Perhaps the focus on my desires has been the reason for not seeing my purpose sooner.  My belief is now, yes, God can use me in my suffering to be an encouragement to others.  Thank you, God, for the work You are doing in my life.  Help me to spread Your love that others may see You are the true Healer.
