Some people say that they would rather have their trials than someone else's. Some people say they would rather have any trial but their own. I'm not really sure where I fall, but I know God doesn't allow us to pick and choose our trials, they are chosen for us, to accomplish divine purposes.
The following is taken from the home page of a blog entitled "A Good Grief."
After the loss of her two year old daughter, Lucy, in 2008, Molly maintained her family blog, chronicling her grief. Resonating with people from all walks of life, her experience unveiled varied human suffering and like stories around the globe.
Molly started a blog where people share their stories of grief, but in a positive and transformative way. I sent her my own story of the grief I've suffered as the result of disappointed dreams of marriage and life. But to be sure, I recognize my grief as good in the sense that I am transforming into a better version of myself.
I have been inspired by the many stories I've read on Molly's blog, and the strength I can draw from those who also suffer. You can read what I wrote here or other stories of hope and healing here.
