SHARING PAIN FOR GAIN!

09 Sep

I found pain a very useful commodity when it comes to gain.  Pain has the ability to never let us forget how it felt or what has happened.  Oftentimes, we forget about things we have suffered, but, pain is the ultimate teacher when it comes to retaining those misfortunes.  Some pain is emotional; the loss of a loved one, a friend that hurt us, and some pain is physical as in a migraine headache, a cut finger.

To suffer is to undergo or experience any action, process, or condition to suffer; such as pain, distress, loss, disability and injury.  To be consoled takes a person or thing that is a source of comfort in a time of suffering, grief, etc.  In order to get through any of these hardships, it is best to take it to the Lord in prayer.  There is nothing like having a chat in private with our CEO, Jesus Christ.

Some of us have had an incredibly hard time in our life, and for some, it was only for a season.  All of us have felt the pain and or happiness at some point.  This world is not set up for us to go thru the entire process of living without suffering thru some type of sins, joy or let downs coupled with great sorrow.  “God made one son on earth without sin, but never one without suffering.”   Augustine

At times we experience self-induced pain when we sin, causing us to suffer serious consequences; I know I have, and sometimes pain is no fault of our own; being hit by a drunk driver.  There are also spiritual pains; the bible clearly tells us that the followers of Christ, whatever the circumstances, will have troubles.

“Yes, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”   2nd Timothy 3:12            

Don’t be scared of those words, the Word of God often contain warnings that have a happy ending when heeded, and the goodness is sharing what we know about these words in times of trouble can ease anxieties.  We are full of helpful tidbits and not always aware of it.  We know things that could help others overcome their dilemmas.  Most don’t have to pay for an Angie’s List, because we have Christ, and he tells us if we choose to share our knowledge we can receive and offer a larger range of options; I have been told “what goes around comes around,” and it is written.

I have been on both sides of the spectrum as most, and I knew more about pain and suffering than I let on.  Not that I was hiding pain, I just let it go, disguised as “nobodies business.”   I also know a lot about not having a care in the world, at times, because of Jesus Christ.  By sharing we can build a wealth of knowledge that would be a blessing for others.  Some could get an idea of what to expect or how others dealt with a similar situation, relieving a stressful condition.  Now all this still requires the Love of Jesus, nothing can be achieved without him when pressed down.

“The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.”   Psalms 9:9

Wanting to be useful in the eyes of our peers, and Jesus Christ creates a healthy state of mind.  If we are doing well unto others, we may live a wholesome enough life to receive blessings in our own worst of times.  With the shared information we can give warning or prepare another with what may lie ahead.  If we are on the informational hotline we may be able to cut some of the drama off at the pass, because of knowledge; an advantage creating gain and faith, a healer.

What others may or may not need is guess-work, leaving most of us with the wrong antidote.  I have no idea what people need, so with that in mind, I have allowed them to choose whatever information I have that may be important to them.  Knowledge is to be shared and we need to pray for the proper guidance.

Misinformation is worse than no information at all.

Suffering can be in the form of complaints, and some sufferings have positive side effects.  I know some pain depends on our attitude towards whatever ails us, some by age, trial and tribulations and some of it chalked up as just another hairy experience.  Whatever the story if you have the knowledge, share it with us.

Being in the midst of those who like to talk may at times say something useful, so let them talk, just be careful of what you listen to.  Not all information is good information and at times it is only what someone else want us to hear that is negative.  “To kill the head is to kill the body.”

We all have a Testimony whether we share it or not.  The way we understand things is what makes them useful, so I stopped judging what is best for the masses and began giving what you have without reserves.  I know Christ does not wish cancers or any hardships on us; it’s the way of the world and the Devil.

Suffering is a part of the natural order of nature, we can’t live with or without it, and experience can be a brutal teacher.  I believe no character is tested until it has suffered.  For the most part I fluffed it off as; such is life and we must go on.  When I was told in my sleep years and years ago, I would have trouble in my breast, I told no one.  Finally, when I did decide to share, people proclaimed I should get therapy, they said, “hearing voices was unnatural.”

I know I am not crazy; in my opinion, so I’ll just continue going to Church and listening the Word of God; Sometimes it seemed if the Pastor is talking directly to me.

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.”   1st Peter 4:12-13

I survived my ordeal because I obeyed the spiritual voice in my heart, the Holy Spirit.  I knew there were others in the same or similar situation as me, and did not experience the same grace, we need to hear their testimonies too.  In any event the knowledge, I have or had access to, is what determined how well I handled my crisis.  Our attitude and beliefs will determine our life’s outcome; this is important enough to make me want to share it with all of you.

“Crisis takes us to the brink of our limit and forces us to keep moving.”

Some of us have a tendency to go overboard about everything, believing if it happens to us, all should suffer; but great and small suffer mishaps, so there is no need to plot or wish it on others.  Use your experience to be positive.  We all need to learn from others so as to share in a cure, or solution.    It’s Something To Think About.

I did not always share because something’s were not important to me, not realizing to someone else the knowledge I have is exactly what they need.  I learned how to determine what is important, and that was to put it out there, and let those who may be in need determine its importance.  Whatever we find useless maybe some others missing piece.  The voice (Holy Spirit) in my sleep reassured me to trust and obey my heart; and of the promise God made in Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”  

Thank you Lord for all you have done and will do in the future, and giving me the wisdom to share the knowledge you have given to me.   Amen

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you
    do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Thanks!
