"Occasionally it occurs to me that I've been given an unusual number of trials in recent years," writes Julia Attaway of New York City. "Yet one thing I'm learning is that whether or not I remember to place my life in God's hands, I am held there anyway." When she's struggling, Julia finds comfort in the image of herself writhing—small but safe—in the wounded palm of Christ. "Stresses and distresses are less acute when I remember that our life on earth isn't the whole story. It helps immensely to hold tight to Romans 8:18 (NIV): 'I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.'"
