Every morning I wake up and I’m reminded very quickly how bad pain sucks. My back and my hips remind me every morning.
I know I don’t have to tell you that, but it kind of feels good to say that!
In the fall, I was loving life. I was even running again. Then Pain decided to muck that up! I haven’t run in 4 weeks. Bending, putting on socks, stretching, it’s all painful. Intense. And it sucks.
I love the Health and Wealth Prosperity Christians. I heard Jimmy Swaggart say once that if you don’t tithe, your cancer may not be healed. What a crock of crap!
You cannot read through Jesus’ live in the Gospels and tell me that he didn’t suffer pain. The apostle Pain fought pain like crazy. Every disciple experienced pain.
Its part of life and we’re not given a ‘out of pain card’ when we trust in Jesus. Pain is a part of life.
Pain can help. Pain can teach us. Pain can show us how to extend grace. Pain can change us. Pain can make us more like Jesus.
And, yes, you can find the…
Beauty in your Pain.
I love Pauls words in 2 Corinthians 4:17…For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
If you’re suffering from Pain. I’m sorry and I would love to pray for you. Email me at Jason.firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll pray!
Whether your pain is physical, financial, emotional or mental. Pain sucks.
But, I’ve found, the sooner I can begin to see the beauty in my pain, the sooner my pain doesn’t throw me in a prison cell and throw away the key!
Tomorrow is a new day! Turn to Jesus! Turn to your community for help!
This song and mini message has helped me a ton! I hope it will help you as well!
