This world we live in is broken and no one is spared from disappointments, hurts, rejection, failure and death. The pain we feel, especially in our toughest times either make us bitter and numb, or it will make us better. That was a decision I had to make when life hit me hard. Pain makes us better when we look to God in our pain and learn to let Him heal us.
I have certainly learnt that. I have learnt that even in my pain it is better to let God know how I feel than to keep it in and act like all is well. Pain can be blinding sometimes, and I have believed the lies before that God is punishing me, and that “He doesn’t care about me’ and I certainly haven’t been good enough to earn His favour. So, that’s why I am suffering but none of that is true, because Christ already took my punishment and He cares deeply for me and you.
