Pain is the greatest teacher.
(But also OW)
Because we humans are not gods.
We don’t achieve this state of growth unless the pain helps us to remember.
Instead, we go after comfort.
A way to dull the pain.
I have been praying for a lessening of the pain.
But you know what?
That was a mistake. I need to pray for just a little bit more, to get me through the hurdle.
Because the pain that tore me apart?
Well, that wound needs the motivation of more pain to get me to heal.
