I was reading my devotional earlier this morning from "Streams in the Desert" and it fit Troy's message of purpose for his journey perfectly. The overall message was that God puts hurt and sorrow in your life so that you can help others more effectively. "You will be wounded so that in the binding up of your wounds by The Great Physician, you may learn how to render first aid to wounded everywhere." Because Troy has been wounded and is now being healed he will be able to give witness to the power of Jesus Christ.
"God comforts us not to make us comfortable but to comfort others." John Henry Jowett
I hope Troy's journey has been a blessing to others already and I am looking forward to seeing how God uses him in the future.
