ENCOURAGEMENT FOR TODAY-What if Pain is a Blessing in Disguise?
As we come to the end of another year, I would love for you to settle this doubt about the idea of pain and suffering. So often, we believe if we are going through painful events, troubles at work, suffering, hardships, medical issues, trials, etc. something must be wrong with us or God must be punishing us.
May I suggest something else? Certainly, if we have done something we know is wrong and are dealing with the consequences that is one thing. And we must account for the fact that we just live in an imperfect world where evil things are going to happen period. However, the third point that we often forget is that our pain, while horrible in the moment, is serving a purpose and a plan.
No matter what you are going through, the Lord has you exactly where He wants you and is preparing for you. You are not crazy, weird, an outcast, nor the lies that you are believing and feeling. You are not too late or behind His timetable. What you are going through is needed. Yep, it feels crazy but hold on. You are not alone. Be Encouraged.
You can do this!
