verse 3: “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.”
This statement alone might suffice in so many situations. I can take anything to God: the small things or the big, ugly scary things. There does not need to be a reason for things to happen. If there is a reason, only God knows it. But he does tell us to come to him and ask for help, no matter what happens. It is in that asking for help that I am changed. When I am worn out from trying to fix myself on my own, and I finally go to God and let him know I need him, this is when change happens.
God above, I do need you. I forget sometimes, to ask, and I go on worrying and suffering on my own. You are always there for me, waiting for that call for help. Amen
