Thursday, August 19th. Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

Some of the greatest benefits to mankind have had their source in men who have experienced great affliction. The German poet Goethe said, “I never experienced affliction that did not turn into a poem.” The music that gives man a taste of heaven has often come from afflicted hearts.

John Piper wrote an article entitled, “Don’t Waste Your Cancer.” In that work, he encourages us to use all that God sends our way, not only for our benefit but also for the benefit of others. Our trials can encourage others. The apostle Paul reminds us in Romans 8:28:
“All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose.”

"God, thank You for my challenges. Let me be a blessing to others.

Bro. Bill

God loves you!
