Eighteen years ago I almost died from a disease that cause my organs to fail and my skin to fall off. Here’s what I wrote in my journal on the first night life began to normalize.
The lessons Peter learned along the way are the lessons he teaches in this letter to the church. Lessons that take followers of Christ beyond the anticipation of suffering to the expectation of power and grace in the midst of suffering. Lessons to carry you through your darkest days. Lessons to show you how the light of God’s grace in Christ Jesus will penetrate your darkest days and fill you with a joy only those who continue to follow will ever know.
