Pain and suffering can help us to learn vital life lessons.
The valley of suffering can shape our character
and prevent us from becoming dangerously proud.
Pain and suffering can lead to
repentance and salvation
and help us to put our trust in God.
When we bear the pain and go through
the valley of suffering...
we can be an inspiration to others.
In life, pain and storms are inevitable.
Whether emotional or physical pain...
we will all experience
the valleys of suffering and pain...
at some point in life.
God is totally aware and committed
to accomplish the purposes for the hurt
He has allowed.
No one comes out of
the valley of pain and suffering...
As painful as it is,
pain and suffering has a way of stripping away
those things that will not bring out the best in us.
Pain can often help us find a new sense of purpose,
acceptance of what is happening,
and the realization of inner peace.
Those valleys of suffering will not go away
until the reason for their arrival has been accomplished.
God is masterful enough to divinely orchestrate
all of our trials and tribulations
in such a way
that they ultimately draw us towards being
the people God desires for us to be.
Let us keep in mind...
whatever brings us
closer to God is a blessing.
God uses the most painful
suffering for good.
Those painful periods can
serve as powerful and
May our response to pain and suffering
lead us to
look beyond the pain and suffering
in the attempt to
see God’s higher purposes
and what God wants to teach us.
Let us always remember
and never forget:
God does not leave us hopeless or in
despair as we navigate
through these valleys of suffering.
Time and time again….
God promises and provides...
His amazing grace.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now, I see.
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear...
and Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed
Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.
As God ordains suffering in our lives,
may we embrace it,
knowing it will be for our good,
both now and forever.
