Pain and suffering are realities in this sinful, broken world. I cringe at the thought of you facing any sort of pain, but I know it will happen. Suffering is just inevitable while we linger here on earth.
People will tell you that time heals all wounds or some cliche like that. But the truth is, while there is an element of time involved in the healing process, Jesus brings true healing. Healing comes from the One who endured the greatest suffering, the One who was completely perfect and completely good and laid down His own life on the cross for us. The One who bled for you is ready to receive you and all your brokenness, all your pain, all your suffering.
You are never alone in your pain. Jesus sees, knows, understands. And the people around you carry all sorts of, sometimes hidden, pain.
And know that sometimes healing doesn't happen this side of eternity, or at least in the ways we wish, but Jesus will be with you through it all. And His presence provides hope and joy, peace and comfort. Beauty and grace can abound in the midst of the pain, and sometimes in ways that can't happen without the pain.
So be quick to take your pain to Jesus. He is the ultimate Healer.
Healed By Him,
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."
