Ever wondered why bad things happen to good people? We have all wondered. We have an omniscient God so what is the purpose of our suffering? This video is a beautiful witness to God's loving plan for life...it's a reminder that God can use anyone - anywhere, anytime. Sometimes you hear people talk about "quality of life". How can we measure such a thing? And even in the midst of intense pain and agony, we have to remember that life is not about us. Our sole purpose in life is to be a mirror reflecting God's glory to the world. God, help us to see you in every situation...in the face of every man woman and child. Help us to embrace the life that you so generously give to us - from womb to tomb - even when we struggle to see how you will use our circumstances for good.

Psalm 115:1 Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.

PS - don't watch this video at work or school (unless you like people to see you sobbing). It's extremely emotional, but I promise that you will be blessed.

  1. everytime i watch this i cry my eyes out! but so true. in the nursing realm people speak of "quality of life" constantly, especially in reference to "putting people out of their misery." so sad to not see the dignity of the human life. this is also true of people who say "I don't care as long as it's healthy" when asked if they're having a boy or a girl baby.
