What I am learning this week

If you want to experience pure joy, you must be ready to experience pure pain. Pure, heart breaking pain that makes you ache for the only cure.....Jesus.

Oh, Jesus. Come place your healing hand on my heart, because I want to know the Joy that only comes from you.

Thoughts for the day said...

Oh what a bold prayer from a sister in the Lord who I care for... if you are like me I don't want the pain to be so intense that it feels like it is shattering my 'solid foundation or rocking my world' the pain and ache can come from pure compassion for another, or being sensitive to the hurts around me or from my own 'repentent heart'. I am fearful of the gut wrenching pain of losing a loved one or a health gone bad. Dear Lord Jesus the pure joy can come from you without the heartbreaking pain right?
You have given me a challenge today and something to think about.
