Every day, at every moment, Christ is trying to get our attention. He is constantly trying to show us His love for us and lead us along the right path. But we are distracted. We are not interested. We don’t understand. We are not listening. Our faith is weak and we doubt. Is it any wonder, then, that it’s during the painful times that He is able to really help us? Those times when we finally look to Him for answers? Maybe that’s one great lesson of enduring pain – that through our pain, we allow Christ to come into focus and that an opportunity He has waited for; His opportunity to give us what we need.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. – Matthew 6:33
