Thank you for sharing this. Although my circumstances are different, I could relate to much of what you share.
I very much agree with your words “trials and suffering have a reality about them that they force our own neediness upon us, whether we like it or not.”

I received this in my inbox nine days ago but hadn’t time to watch it until today. It is exactly what I needed to hear. I’ve been really struggling this week and through this father’s testimony God has touched my heart.
Levi’s dad says “Trials and suffering have a reality about them that they force our own neediness upon us, whether we like it or not. It’s not easy and it’s not romantic. However, they can be a point of life as our Saviour brings us deeper into Himself.
My heart goes out to Levi and his family…I cry with tears of understanding and with tears of thankfulness. My family too has experienced the great goodness of God through disability and suffering and now loss as well.
My daughter Noelle was born alive, against all odds, with a genetic condition similar to Downs, Trisomy 18. She passed away suddenly from complications from a virus and her complicated heart. We may have been at Childrens at the same time…she was 21 months when she died 3 months ago.
