For more than thirty years I have read, studied and meditated on Scripture. To me, this has been an important aspect of experiencing the presence of God an finding wisdom & direction in life. A friend of mine from Australia also gave me some sound wisdom recently by suggesting if we want to experience the presence of God and discover where God is at work on earth all we need to do was find the pain and suffering in my community. My friend continued, “God is always at work amidst the pain and suffering. In fact, God invites us to join Him in bringing comfort, healing, and peace. ” Hmmmm… makes sense to me.
