Last evening, I had the opportunity to relax and watch the movie, 'I Can Only Imagine.' As I watched the movie, I was moved by how God can heal our hurts through our willingness to forgive. Pain is often a warning signal that indicates something is wrong in our life. I was reminded of how God uses suffering for our good. Just because we don't see pain as a purpose, does not mean that it doesn't have a purpose.
Be encouraged that God uses our painful experiences to motivate us. What I love is how He uses ordinary people to help us see the things in ourselves that we often don't see. Praise God for people like Amy Grant in our life that God used to encourage us to keep moving despite the challenges.
"Sometimes it takes a painful experience to make us change our ways.." - Proverbs 20:30
Confronting our pain forces us to change even when we don't want to.
