John 9:3

"It was not because of his sins or his parents' sins," Jesus answered. "This happened so the power of God could be seen in him."

Insight: This is Jesus' response to his disciples, when they asked why a man was born blind. It can help us shift our perspective, if we allow, to begin to process hardship and trials through a different lens. As we continue to grow in our faith, perhaps we can stop asking "why?", and begin asking, "God how can you work in this situation?"

Prayer: God help me to trust you in the midst of the struggles, and frankly the injustices, of life. Open my eyes and heart to see the ways that you're already working, and to see the ways that you would like to work through me.
