Today I will suffer great pain. How do I know that? Because I am going to get a mammogram.
Who invented that machine anyway? Certainly not a woman!
Sometimes you just have to suffer some pain to be healthy. Not that I like it. But, the end result is worth it.
Sometimes God allows us to go through pain. Not because he enjoys seeing us suffer but because he knows it is necessary for our spiritual health.
Dealing with painful memories. Facing hurts. Acknowledging our sinfulness. All these are painful things to face. We may not like going through the suffering but, like mammograms, the end result is worth it.
Acknowledging suffering isn't fun but looking toward the end results, Gloria
