Our culture treats suffering like a problem to fix, a blight to hide, or the sad start of a transformation story. When your prayers for healing haven't been answered, the fog of depression isn't lifting, your marriage is ending in divorce, or grief won't go away, it's easy to feel you've failed God or, worse, he's failed you. If God loves us, why does he allow us to hurt? More than a decade ago chronic illness plunged therapist and writer K.J. Ramsey straight into this paradox. She wanted to conquer suffering. Instead, she encountered the God who chose it. This Too Shall Last offers an antidote to our cultural idolatry of effort and ease. Through personal story and insights from neuroscience and theology, Ramsey invites us to let our tears become lenses of the wonder that before God ever rescues us, he stands in solidarity with us. What if the church treated suffering like a story to tell rather than a secret to keep until it passes?
