Only God Can Get You Through Any Kind Of Pain

Do you want to know the secret to getting over any kind of pain or trauma or loss? Do you want to know the magic formula of healing once and for all? The answer is not found in people or relationships or work or success or material gains. The answer is not found in ego or revenge and retaliation. The answer is not found in traveling the world and escaping your reality. The only answer is in your relationship with God. Your unwavering faith. Your blind trust in him. Your patience in waiting for him to uncover the whys and the delays and all the suffering you had to go through. This is your only answer. Anything else is just a temporary fix.

I don’t care if you’re the smartest person in the room or the most attractive person in the world. I don’t care if you are rich and famous and can get anyone you want. I don’t care if you have the best relationship in the world and the most beautiful family, if you don’t know how to heal and if you don’t strengthen your relationship with God, you will never be satisfied or grateful for what you have. You will never be fulfilled. If you don’t work on your relationship with God, a part of you will always be empty and there will always be a void that you can never fill.

The truth is it’s one of the most challenging relationships because even though you know that God has everything figured out for you and he plans everything to work out in your favor, it’s sometimes impossible to look at it from that perspective when you’re in pain or you’re hurting or lost someone you can’t live without. It’s hard to fully surrender to God when we feel like he could have just made our lives easier instead of making us suffer but the twist is, the more we suffer, the more we need God and the more we try to understand the whys the more the truth eludes us but what I know for sure is that if God brings you to it, he will bring you through it and if it seems like he’s breaking you, he’s actually building you and the only way for you to see that and understand it is through faith.

When you strengthen your relationship with God and when you’re no longer afraid of things going wrong or life turning its back on you, this is when God shows up, this is when you will see how everything was working in your favor all along, you will finally understand the whys and you will look back and beat yourself up for mourning the loss of things that could have destroyed you. When you work on your relationship with God you finally find inner peace and somehow life magically works out for you because you’re no longer resisting, you’re no longer questioning and you’re no longer dwelling on your fate because faith isn’t a feeling, it’s a choice and when you make that choice, your whole life changes in the best way possible.
