Pain can be devastating, and when it becomes so deep we come to the point where nothing but nothing can threaten or cause fear any more. It is a time when "we become the weakest, we are the strongest". It is when our limited concept of GOD is enlarged and we discover things about ourselves and GOD that we would have never discovered without it. We no longer pray for deliverance from the pain but to know GOD, HIS presence and to seek HIS face not just HIS hand. James 1:2-5, "Consider it pure joy, ... whenever you face trials of many kinds...so you are not lacking anything..." This is where we come the full circle and submit to "THY will be done"; it is a time when we are no longer motivated by fear but are dependent on HIM, which is why we were created in the first place. So it starts with pain until there is no pain and progresses to discovering a new and deeper relationship with GOD. WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
