What are you learning from your Pain?

Pain instructs. I believe God allowed pain to instruct us. It wasn’t his first choice. He is not sadistic to choose pain as an instructor. His first choice was obedience.

Consider Jesus…

We all owe it to ourselves to look carefully at this man Jesus. Who did He say He is? How does who He is and what He said affect my life today?

(Proverbs 4:23 NLT) If we will produce maximum results from our lives, we have to be those who understand that we are designed to influence our world much more than our world influences us. We are not denying that our world…
