Are you hurting? Are you struggling to get to the next level? Are you undecided on what to do with your life? The majority of the world is dealing with these same issues. Many have a lot of aspirations of becoming successful, but no one wants the hurt, pain, and struggle that goes with it. Pain is something we can not escape whether if we are babies getting vaccination or an elderly person dealing with life changings. Pain is a vital part of our life . God allows pain in our life to draw us closer to Him. If God didn’t allow pain, how could you help encourage someone through life journey, if you never experienced anything before.
How could you speak boldly in faith , if you never had a chance to speak to your own mountain before. Not only does God allows pain to happen but He uses it to help us grow. Everyone wants to grow but the discomfort, aches, long nights, and sporadic pain that comes with it isn’t fun at all. Growing pains hurts because there is a change that’s happening on the inside. God is not only changing you, but sometimes He’s removing people out of your life as well.
When I think of growing, I think of a tree. A tree deals with a lot through it’s lifespan on earth. It loses branches but still remain tall. It loses leaves, but still remain in a perfect shape. The key to a tree lively hood are in it’s root. A tree can survived any climate because it’s roots are deeply rooted in the ground. God wants us to be deeply rooted in His Word. No matter how much we are struggling with life, if we are deeply rooted in God’s Word, the Holy Spirit will leads us into His truths(John 16:13). The only thing we need to have is an open heart, humble lifestyle, and a listening ear for God.
Pain is not fun but be thankful that God is allowing you to experience it. We may not understand the pain now but when God delivers you through this test, you will be so grateful that He chose you. Take out a moment in your day today and Thank God for the pain that’s in your life. Let God know that you Trust Him through it all.
A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come, but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.
