There’s a purpose behind your physical or emotional pain. Pain will always be present in your life, but you don’t need to struggle to find a purpose behind your pain. It’s is an opportunity for you to see how strong you are. And in Christ, you are much stronger than you think.
Pain expands your endurance and gives you the herculean ability to persevere through even the most difficult of circumstances. When perseverance finishes its work you are mature, and maturity helps you see the world differently. Perseverance will lead to completeness, to a fuller scope and understanding of life that only pain can teach you. Pain teaches you what pleasure alone never could.
Take comfort and solace to discover the purpose behind your pain. “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)
“Your suffering your treasure,” said the Holy Spirit in plain English, in a loud, clear and unequivocal voice when He originally communicated with me. Consult the article Interaction with the Holy Spirit.
