God Doesn’t Waste Pain


The itching and throbbing I wake up to each morning is pretty intense. That has actually been worse the last few days. But, I’m certain that my body isn’t happy with me getting back into consistent exercise and that always stirs things up more. I’ve just gotta survive this transition time and not let it throw me off this horse called recovery.

Even though I hate feeling this way there is a lot of truth when It comes to the saying “No pain, no gain.” This applies when it comes to the development of strength, character and faith for sure. You’ve got to go through some uncomfortable stuff for growth to take place. It’s often far from fun, but usually totally necessary.

I’m like most others I don’t enjoy pain at the time, but I’ve learned it’s the way life works. So, we can’t let the painful moments throw us. God is doing something or trying to show us something. Worst thing we can do is waste our pain. And no matter what the cause of our pain in God’s hands something good is being developed.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
James 1:2-4
