  1. The most comforting truth about this reality is that we can come to Christ over and over for comfort and strength.
    He sympathizes with us.
    He cares.
    He shares our suffering and walks through it with us.
    As we seek Him in our distress, we come to know Him more intimately. In this way, we can be compensated for our suffering because to the depth of our suffering, we can also know the depths of His love and comfort. We don’t have to waste our sorrows because by seeking Him in them, we discover Him in deeper ways than we would have otherwise.

    “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:15, 16 (NIV)

  2. Holly, I just discovered you and your writings this week… but what an encouragement! Thank you for speaking Truth to my heart today.

  3. Hi Holley,
    I have enjoyed your posts, and I love your book, it is so encouraging in the everyday, hard, and also joyful places of this life.
    Thank you,

  4. Words I so needed to read this morning as I continue to endure a heartbreaking situation in this imperfect world we now live in. Fixing my hope on Jesus and His promise of what is to come. Thank you.

  5. Thank You, Jesus, for bearing our sorrows and sicknesses on the cross as well as our sins. Thank You for becoming sin to make us righteous with Your righteousness. Thank You that these broken bodies are only temporary and someday we will be whole. And thank You for Holley, for Your work in her life and for giving her the courage and gifts to share the comfort and hope she receives from You.

  6. I am so thankful I clicked on the Book Club link today! I have been dealing with issues for almost 2 years now with my health. I’m tired, I’m hurting, and I am floundering. But you reminded me tonight that HOPE does indeed win!

  7. Holley, I’ve been hit full-force tonight with the truth that God’s goodness is not based on circumstantial evidence…
    just a glance at Dawn’s postings at ‘Roscommon Acres’ or Joy’s writings at ‘Joy In The Journey’ and I’m painfully convicted of my own petulant ingratitude.
    How can I utter complaint? How can I doubt His Will, His Goodness, even in the midst of suffering, as I contemplate the cross?
    Fear hovers, doubt prowls…but Hope…Hope is what I call out for, every time I speak His name: Jesus!

  8. Hi Holley,
