Many of us would like to run away to a far place when we feel hurt or someone hurt us. Some would just want to just get by the days and shake off the pain. Others, read a lot of motivational books that teach humans how to psyche up their selves and act like nothing is wrong. As for me, I like to get lost on a new road and wander for a bit.
Probably, how we deal with pain and suffering is very subjective. It depends on how one would like their journey to be. I made a decision that I cannot take back, it kept me tied up for more than a year now and every day I wake up with a pinch of pain wishing I could have gone a different path when I had a chance before. Today, I see same faces, taking in the same hurt, bearing the same situation, but I HAVE HOPE.
A hope that every pain is worth a lesson. Every person who has hurt me is worth forgiving. Every unkind word spoken to me makes me stronger. I never wish for someone to grow old and cold because of my mistakes. I know, I have made unbearable mistakes in the past, but my prayers are not left unheard.
NEVER CEASE PRAYING.
“Easier said than done, Rose,” he said to me. But what makes it more painful is when you keep seeking wisdom from the wrong source. You seek human wisdom in order to psyche yourself up and feel like everything is okay. The truth is, God is waiting for you to tell Him how painful it is. Though He knows everything about you, He knows every pain and joy that you feel, He wants you to tell Him what you need.
Pray more when in pain.
