    Several choice concepts in this post resonated with me. Thanks, Jeff.
    1. God doesn’t make junk…we know this, but have to be reminded of the significance of this statement when we forget our place in the universe as God’s children.
    2. We were made for the struggle…in my mind this is related to 1. God made us and loves us, Loves us enough to know that what we achieve through struggle is treasured more than what we have as a gift.

      Thanks for the insights Joel! As you state, accepting struggle as a gift is the first step in redeeming it.
