The Benefits of Suffering – 23 Reasons to Count It all Joy

The Benefits of Suffering – 23 Reasons to Count It all Joy

Everything God does, He does for a reason—an infinitely good reason. He does not waste His time and He does nothing arbitrarily. God only does good things (Dt.32:4). Oh, what a blessing it is to know that absolutely everything that ever happens to us—down to the smallest detail—is a purposeful, intentional, loving, wise, beneficial step in a grand, glorious design!  Every moment of every day you are experiencing the unfolding of the great drama of God’s perfect providential plan.

Nonfiction Readers


If you’re like me, you don’t have much time for novels. An exciting story can be fun, but there’s so much to learn—so many books out there that can help you understand more about God and his Word. Books that will help you live the Christian life and increase your love for God and others.

I believe there is a place for fiction, but all our reading, fiction or nonfiction, should be for one purpose. Increasing our love for God.

Jesus was clear. Nothing is more important than loving God and loving others. All my books are written with that governing principle. The devotionals are designed not just to give you a daily insight, but to provide clear, practical ways to increase your love for the Lord every day.

And the Wise Counsel book is designed to equip you in your efforts to love others, showing you how to give them spiritual help that supplies exactly what they need in the moment.


Fiction Readers


Everyone loves a good drama. There’s nothing quite like getting lost in a story that carries you through adventures, dangers, and mysteries and lets you experience losses, gains, victories, defeats, anticipation, hope, and love—all without leaving the comfort of your overstuffed chair and hot tea.

But there’s something even better than a good story. Namely, a good story that edifies your soul and moves your emotions closer to God’s affections, so you feel what he feels. Fiction, at its best, trains your soul to see things the way God sees them.

That’s the kind of story I strive to write. All my effort is writing is for that goal.


Nothing in the Christian life is harder than changing the way you feel to match the way God calls you to feel. But a gripping story that pulls you inside a character who makes godliness seem desirable can be one of the most powerful ways to improve your own affections.
