Songs of Suffering: A Short Film Featuring Joni Eareckson Tada

Suffering Redeemed

“Suffering will teach you who you are. It's a textbook that will show you the stuff of which you are made. And sometimes it's not very pretty. Suffering will squeeze that out of you. We say we know Christ. The next time you suffer hard, find out what comes out of your mouth. That will show you how much you know Jesus. And in that sense, it's good.”

No one has spoken more personally and insightfully into the intersection of suffering and faith than Joni Eareckson Tada. In this 13-minute documentary, hear more from Joni herself about her story, how she reacted when she learned 55 years ago that she would never walk again, and what she does to find the heartbeat of Christ within her daily struggle with chronic pain and quadriplegia.
