The Gift of Pain

Have you fallen on some hard times? Often, God brings us through seasons of testing to show us who we really are. He lets us experience trials and temptations to reveal what is really inside of us so He can change us. The hard things in life teach us to be patient, and patience makes us holy and makes us whole. When things are falling apart, it’s then we must ask God for wisdom - to see the work He is doing in our lives. Even when we don’t find relief from our problems, we can find peace in knowing He has a reason for them. Cry out to Him, and let Him settle the storm that has unsettled your heart.
