By Lynn Wallace

"The wise in heart shall be called prudent, and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning" (Proverbs 16:21).

Ellen suffered unbearable pain from two compressed disks in her back. She lay still in bed, unable to get up and down. Her husband Chuck helped her in the simplest tasks.

Ellen confided to me once that her hobby was helping others. Now she lay helpless, unable to help herself.

Often the pain interrupted her sleep. She laid there and turned her thoughts to the Lord.

After several months, she rejoiced to be able again to attend church. "I'm thankful," she testified. "When I can't sleep at night, it gives me more time to pray."

Her pain subsided to a tolerable level. Ellen reluctantly admitted she still had a little pain. She did not like to complain and dwell on her troubles. Now Ellen suffers no more from pain. She departed for her heavenly home.

A sweet person, Ellen readily admitted that she had faults. We can learn from her sweet testimony, which stemmed from a wise heart.

Am I prone to complain when swallowed up by pain? On the other hand, do I still have a thankful heart and sweet lips, which can help others, learn?

Prayer: Oh God, help me to be thankful even when I suffer pain. Give me sweet lips to help others learn. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Wallace--Sleepless 1
