Thorn In The Flesh

For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Corinthians 12:10

Pain and hardships will show up in our lives. We can count on it. Some will be more intense than others, but you can bet a calamity will take place at some time in your life. It is the product of living in a broken world.

My friends Jesse and Ashley McMillan are well acquainted with this brokenness. This couple lives in a state of unknowns as Jesse endures a battle with brain cancer. Last year, Ashley reached out to me and asked if I would create a piece of art for her to help share what they were experiencing. When Ashley and I talked on the phone, we both knew God was up to something. I was humbled and honored at this opportunity to create for God’s glory, for a couple that wants to use their pain for God’s glory.


Go and read their story and watch Jesse and Ashley share testimony of God’s work in their lives at Ashley’s blog Every Little Jot & Tittle. Also pray that God would use their story to change the lives of many!
