That's the thing about pain; it demands to be felt. Pain empowers change. Pain is the engine of change. God is a God that brings beauty out of pain.
Let your strength pour through your pain.
"There's more to come, we continue to shout our praise even when we are hemmed in with troubles, because we know that troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. An alert expectancy such as this; we will not feel short changed" Romans 5:3-4 MSG
