He did this for a purpose: He was teaching them and preparing them how to be a holy people for a holy God. He was showing them His heart, His faithfulness, His trustworthiness, and His love.
We have been in somewhat of a desert: infertility, six miscarriages, two sons passing away at birth, and a brain tumor – just to name some highlights of our young marriage.

He has forged us through this suffering and created in us a faith and trust that could not have been gained otherwise.
