I've been thanking God for pain. Pain seems to carry this negative connotation with it. But I've come to see, it's a good thing. It hurts, obviously. But what ensues from this pain is a kind of healing. Through pain you begin to see reality better, and you draw nearer to the Lord. It's the best thing to be closer to the Lord. Trials and even minuscule hardships are painful, but God is so GOOD. He is beautiful, the definition of bliss. All praise be to Him; He will never leave us nor forsake us in our weaknesses or troubles.
Thank you, Lord.
