Life Hurts, God Heals
No one escapes pain. It doesn't matter how wealthy you are, how pretty you are, whether you're a gifted athlete or if you come from the most together Christian family... you can’t buy your way out of pain and you can’t act your way out of pain. It is everywhere. And it hurts.
That’s why we love the Bible. If you were to read the Bible you would find that the people of the Bible that are the heroes of the faith were not these perfect people. They were broken people, had bad pasts - some were even manic depressive people. The Bible is so honest on the reality of life. David writes in Psalm 6, “I am worn out with pain. Every night my pillow is wet with tears.” If you read about Job you would see a guy that was literally wrecked by one pain after another. In fact, Job himself said, “The churning inside me never stops. Days of suffering confront me.” Pain is everywhere and it hurts.
And the Good News is God doesn't want you to stay stuck in your pain and He doesn't want you to suffer alone. He's created us to not only need Him, but need each other. That's where Life Hurts, God Heals can help you.
