Wasted Pain

God-Will-Never-Waste-Your-Pain_thumb.pngThe things we go through don’t always make sense. In the midst of our pain, it is hard to step back and ask what the purpose of it might be. Rest assured of the fact that when you are going through something difficult, God’s plan and God’s desire is to help you to grow stronger and wiser through that pain. It might not be easier to go through, but it is comforting, even in the throws of pain, to know that there is something good that can come out it.
