Wrestling With an Angel

My friend Cheryl forwarded this video link recently. Cheryl wanted me to see the story posted on Desiring Godcalled The Glory of God in the Gift of Disability. John Piper was talking about…

Jesus says that the purpose of the blindness is to put the work of God on display. This means that for our suffering to have ultimate meaning, God must be supremely valuable to us. More valuable than health and life.

But what if the intense suffering is happening to your child? Can God really be more valuable to a parent than a healthy child? Can there possibly be purpose to disability?

Listen to the tough policeman explain how his life was forever changed by God – using his adopted son.

Greg Lucas, the policeman, and father of Jake tells the whole story in a new book, Wrestling with an Angel: A Story of Love, Disablity and the Lessons of Grace.

This touched my life, and was a blessing to me.
