My wife fell on black ice and broke her ankle in three places. I am sad, and kinda upset about it all and asking Why God allowed this? But then again it could have been allot worse, or it could get worse and one thing will lead to another, and another, etc.. I do not know the future, nor do I know if God allowed this to strengthen our marriage, or to discipline us. My wife is taking it well, and is patient, humble, and is not bitter at all. There is a book by Jerry Bridges called Trusting God even when life hurts that I plan to go through again, and its been awhile since the last time. If anyone has any sermons by Charles Stanley on this topic please post them, as he seems a compassionate author whom knows application well. One can't interpret every trial as a demonic attack, and the book of James says to count it all joy when we go through trials and hardships. Its not easy having joy, but with the help of the Holy Spirit this can be possible. Besides the health of my wife, I have also been worried about finances as there will be copays and stuff we need to pay out of pocket of which we do not have the money. My wife has filed bankruptcy before, but these kinds of things happen and plenty that have filed bankrupcy end up with large hospital bills. I am in lots of debt as well, however I am able to make payments which makes my score high. If anyone has a personal story, or can relate to my situation please do post.
