Dear Reader,
Pain opens the heart to search for meaning. We ask God, “Why?” And find He is silent. We question His goodness, love and sovereignty. These questions bring us to Him.

By coming to Him, we learn the deeper answers. We find the love we crave. We discover the God Who wants us to know Him.

This collection of articles leads us to find that meaning, learn those answers and see our God.

If you require more explanations before you approach Him with open arms, read the two books I used: Paul Brand and Philip Yancey in In His Image provides a heart view of God and C.S. Lewis in The Problem of Pain gives the mind’s view of God. Or better yet, search the Psalms where you see David’s heart poured out before his God and see the answers He finds.

God is waiting for you to come to Him. He uses pain to get your attention.

May these answers bring you to the Savior where His perfect love is found.
