The definition of pain :physical suffering or discomfort caused by illness or injury
Injury can be physical and emotional.
We all walk roads of pain at one time or another.
Whether it's our own road or one we are walking for someone we love and care for.
Each one is a different based on the circumstances and situations they are going through.
Some are self inflicted by their own choices...
And some are not.
There are roads of pain that come to be simply because someone we love is going through hell and back and we have chosen to walk it out with them.
We do so because we love them.....
We do so because we have conquered our own road of pain and know how to prevail.
I choose do so because of the unconditional love of my daddy God has given me my entire life, never leaving nor forsaking me.
It is unconditional love is what will bring those I love through the pain, out of the shame and into a new season of peace.....
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
Our daddy God will put those in our lives willing to walk our roads of pain with us.
Those who will encourage us to keep going....
To give us hope.....
To give us strength......
Those who will carry us when our steps become too heavy.
Others who experienced similar roads in life and know the journey to our destination.
Those who have no clue as to what we are going through but yet choose to stand for us because the love they have in their heart is bigger than the issues we face.
Our roads may be different in the circumstances that surround our situations.
Some may be full of bumps while others my have many twists and turns.
Regardless how different our roads may be .......
Pain is pain and the hurt is the same.
Our roads of pain may be in the form of rejection, loss of a loved one, a broken home, loneliness, old hurts and mistrust from childhood.
It may be physical pain from extended illness and injury.
Regardless of where our pain stems from, it is up to us to allow God's grace into our lives.....
To trust in Him for complete healing.
"Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right
It took me a very long time of living and wallowing on my roads of pain to understand and see the true love of my daddy God.
I had to get to a place in my life where I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.
A place that I really wanted to be happy and no longer hurt day in and day out.
I had to open my eyes and my heart to see the hands reaching out to walk, run and carry through my roads of pain.
If you are on a road of pain right now.....
Regardless if it is bumpy, twisty and full of turns....
Whether it is full of sand and grit and loaded with rocks for you to climb.....
I promise you, if you stretch forth your hand, your daddy God has a hand there to grab you.
There is healing in the pain.
Different road... Same pain
"No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
