a glimpse of God's heart?

Poor girl.... accidentally got a hold of some brownies & so here we are at the vet.... it really hurt our hearts to see her so panicked, so afraid and so miserable — but we knew this was for her good... so we sat with her, held her and tried to calm her... we endured it with her. I think this might be how God is with us...? Although we might get ourselves into trouble... and we want Him to take away the pain... I can see how some things have consequences but He wants to be with us in it... He wants to calm our fears, show us Himself and help us to trust Him more. Taking away the pain might not be the answer, even though that's really what we want... but perhaps, after we go through the experience with Him—we come out of it a little bit wiser, a little bit deeper, and a little more full of compassion for those who struggle in the same way.  <3
