A very caring soul shared this devotional with me which allowed me to see hope through the pain….
God not only cares deeply about the things which cause us pain, but He then takes the ugly pain that has penetrated our souls and uses that same wretched pain to turn us into something more beautiful than we were before the pain. He engineers the discomfort into a springboard for our destiny and we are then able to comfort others. Nothing is wasted in the economy of the Kingdom of God as He takes that which was meant to diminish our lives and turns it into profit. God uses broken, pain-riddled lives to bring His healing and miraculous touch to a broken and pain-riddled world.
