After losing two children to a rare disease, Nancy Guthrie has become an unofficial spokesperson for finding God’s hope in the midst of suffering. She said,
I’ve experienced one of the worst things that can happen, and I haven’t found I’m strong and I can handle it. But I have found out God’s promise is true, His grace is sufficient. Now when I read ‘My grace is sufficient’ (2 Cor.12:9), I believe it not only because Jesus said it in the Bible—I believe it because I’ve experienced it.
In her book, Holding on to Hope, Nancy writes:
Trusting God when the miracle does not come, when the urgent prayer gets no answer, when there is only darkness—this is the kind of faith God values perhaps most of all.
