It is easy to feel like every day we are in too much pain to do what we want or need to do is a waste. We loved this quote that reminds us that when God allows the pain into our life, He never wastes it!
“One thing we may be sure of, however: For the believer all pain has meaning; all adversity is profitable. There is no question that adversity is difficult. It usually takes us by surprise & seems to strike where we are most vulnerable. To us it often appears completely senseless & irrational, but to God none of it is either senseless or irrational. He has a purpose in every pain He brings or allows in our lives. We can be sure that in some way He intends it for our profit & His glory.”
