“They gave our Master a crown of thorns. Why do we hope for a crown of roses?”~ Dr. Martin Luther: I have diabetes, which affects every part of my body. Right now, at the age of 43, I am dealing with heart problems, kidney problems, nerve damage, vision problems. I could go sit down in the corner, and cry buckets of tears, and scream out to God. I could ask Him, why me? Give me a break, I am physically, and mentally tired. But, I refuse to do that. I will bear, whatever I need to bear. Do you think our precious Lord, enjoyed hanging on that cross? No, but He endured all of that suffering for us, He loves us that much. So, how could I possibly think about complaining, or asking Him to remove my thorn? I love You Lord, thank You for the thorns, it makes the roses in my life even sweeter.
