The Benefit of Pain

More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, Romans 5:3-4 ESV

I hate pain as much as anyone.  I have had a bunch of it lately.  It messes with your mind even more than just your body.  It has driven me to depression, put me in a place of despair and tossed me into a place I never thought I'd be!!

THE BENEFIT OF PAIN IS....

Opening my eyes to see where endurance comes from.  Like any athlete, you have to push through the pain to get to the the results you're really looking for.

Pain can be useful believe it or not!!!  It produces:

ENDURANCE

CHARACTER

HOPE

They don't come easy, but if we're willing, the end result is FAR BETTER than the beginning.  There are all types of pain.  Physical, mental, emotional.. it covers a bunch and for people to tell you that pain is not part of the plan are plain CRAZY!  No one wants pain, no one (in their right mind) prays for pain... people blame people for it, God for it... things for it... but instead of blame, instead of digging into a pit of despair.. strive through endurance which builds your character and provides a rock solid hope!

 

I am learning how to do this in my own life and I hope that in the midst of whatever you are going through yourself.. you will ALWAYS REMEMBER..... #GodsGotThis
