When we suffer, our first question is often “Why?”

Why me? Why this? Why now?

These are the questions Karen Sunday wanted to ask when she was recently diagnosed with cancer. But her husband, pastor David Sunday, encouraged her to ask some different questions:

Who are you, Lord?

What do you want to teach us about Yourself?


How do you want to use us for Your glory?

Read about this pastor’s loving counsel to his wife in the midst of severe suffering. And please pray for this godly couple.

May God give us all grace to ask these God-glorifying questions.
