Pain is a not four letter word...

Well, it is a four letter word, but it is not a bad four letter word.  There is a very good book about pain by Dr. Paul Brand called, "The Gift of Pain".
Why does God allow pain?  Dr. Brand helped me understand that pain can be a positive influence in our lives.  Pain actually means, "Stop what you are doing.  Get help. NOW."
Whether our pain is physical, emotional, or spiritual, it is telling us:
1. Stop what we are doing.
2. Take an evaluation of the pain.  Is it because of growth?  Is it because of harm?
3.  Get help.  A doctor, a counsellor, God.

Your pain is not your enemy.  It is an alarm built in by your Creator, because He loves you.

Praying today for:
The state of New Hampshire
The nation of North Korea

Remember, Nana loves you!!!
