“It was good for me to be afflicted
so that I might learn Your decrees.”
As I sat and listened to the patient in hospital describe their medical difficulties I was amazed at the sequence and complexity of their issues. It seems that a domino effect had occurred as each problem caused another until they had to be hospitalized and undergo a series of surgeries.
I could not help being very distressed for the person and wondering on the human level how they would ever cope. Life would not be the same for them after this series of problems.
