Pain and Suffering

20170915_165534

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death

or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Revelation 21:4

So we know in the end how things will turn out! I’m looking forward to no more death, or pain, or suffering. Thank you God!

Ok, but what about right now? Many believers encourage us to keep going, no matter what happens in our lives. Ever heard the phrase, “what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger”? But no one can really say that about what we face, because they are not in our shoes.

And we know there are people that are so traumatized, by events occurring in their lives, they either don’t recover, or it is a long process to recovery. I was surprised to find out recently that mental illness can happen, from trauma in a person’s life.

The human spirit is so fragile, we should not judge people that are internally shattered.

Lord God, help us to be compassionate regarding people who need help, For the mentally ill, help us to have a heart of compassion, without judging them. Help us to also realize they may need more help than we are able to offer.

And Lord, we look forward to the day, when there is no more pain or suffering! Amen.

 P.S. I will continue a little more with this topic, next time. Be blessed!
