Facing Pain

We humans often shrink back from pain.
Imagine a woman who does not want the pain of child birth. She will never know the joy of a child.

Imagine a woman who is pregnant, but fears the pain and keeps the child in the womb forever. The child will never know life and she will live with a sense of loss at what could have been……

Then there the brave person who faces their fears head on.
I see you coming Mr. Pain. No problem. Come on, lets go. Lets go live this thru and get to the other side.
These are those who face difficulty, birth babies and bring new life to the world.

Their bodies will never quite be the same. At times they will wax nostalgic and remember when they were young and in really good shape and had not lived thru the pangs of childbirth, but they would not go back. They recognize that they are the better for it, and the world is a better place because they lived thru their pain to achieve a greater vision.

What are you facing this day? This week? What pain lies on the horizon? What good? What greater good? Never let fear hold you back from bigger dreams.  Pain is inevitable- suffering is optional.

It is a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
