 Guest Post - A Prophetic Warning! 

(Originally posted  January 26, 2015)

[Although I have not yet had the privilege to physically meet the gifted writer whose work I am about to share with you, we are not strangers.

Barbara Schoeneberger, M.A. has challenged and stirred my soul (and countless other souls) through her words and inspiring example.

She has struggled for more than a decade with, among other crosses, physical limitations, surgeries, chronic pain, and most recently - cancer. Once she understood "the purpose of her suffering", her life changed. Through sharing her life's experiences and spiritual journey, Barbara hopes her writings will "help others to make the most of the challenges God has sent them."
 
You would serve the welfare of your soul well if you made a point of visiting her at  Suffering With Joy.

Barbara has graciously consented to my sharing one of her most timely posts - one that should be widely read and disseminated]:
