God take our tears …. USE THEM TO WATER SOMETHING NEW.

The gospel story of the Canaanite woman pleading with Jesus that her daughter be free from torment is particularly troubling for those who desire healing and yet do not get the healing we desire. Is God not listening? Is our faith too small? Is God doing something else that we do not expect?

These are not academic questions for people who grieve. This week has been a difficult week for my family, so they are my questions as well.
