Random Thoughts on Suffering and Pain

there are things God wants to do in your heart that can only come through failure (pain)... 

You only need to lose track of who you are, or who you thought you were supposed to be, so that you end up lying flat on the dirt floor basement of your heart. and it's there you will find life (B.B.Taylor)... 

true life is always and only fully discovered through the process of death and rebirth, it's the nature and order of crucifixion/resurrection... 

if there's a way to escape suffering, do it! find a way and thank God for freedom and don't suffer needlessly. 

However, if there is not a way to escape suffering/pain, it is because there is a way to destroy & conquer Satan's kingdom through the pain and God would ask would you be willing to surrender the pain to Him for this purpose - He will turn it back against the father of pain and regain ground for Christ's kingdom instead through your experience if you let Him. Enduring and surrendering for this purpose is a direct affront to Satan. 

Pain is the beginning step towards redemption. 

Again, it's the nature of crucifixion/resurrection.
