Lately, God has been teaching me the principle of beauty from pain. We don't normally associate beauty and pain together. Society tells us that pain is a bad thing when in all reality, pain helps us become who God wants us to be. This does not diminish the hurt that comes from painful situations. Life hurts, the important aspect is how we respond to that hurt. How you respond to the pain in your life is how you will experience beauty from pain. God is molding and shaping you right now. Circumstances in life don't always work out as we hope they will, but learning to celebrate life with God is the key to true joy.
I would love to hear your story. How have you experienced beauty from pain? I would love to pray with and for you as you are on this dusty path called life. I am in the same boat you are in. I am walking the same hallways at school and watching the same pain in my friends' lives as you are. We are in this together! If you want to share your story with me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Maybe God will use your story to encourage someone else!
