Pain Can Mean Gain

dawn over calm atlantic ocean in floridaI was reminded of an important truth today: pain is my friend if I choose not to ignore it. Scripture is a wonderful book. It tells us like it is – the good, the bad and sometimes the ugly sides of many of its characters.
We see the pain caused by their bad choices, the taking of their drugs of choice. Like them, we have two choices in dealing with this pain. We can either ignore it and repeat their mistakes and feel the pain associated with it for ourselves; or, we can learn from it by making better choices to be closer to Jesus.
We don’t have to like pain, but it can certainly become our ally. Ignore it and the damage only gets worse. Use it and your life can change so you can experience the joy that comes from the freedom Jesus gave you.
