My precious child, I want you to know that even in the midst of your pain and suffering – I am with you. I understand that it can be difficult to see the purpose behind your pain, but I assure you that with every painful episode comes the potential to shape and refine yourself into the final best version that you can be.
There is great divine meaning in the existence of pain & suffering in the world, and I want you to know how it can bring you closer to me and help you grow in faith, love and understanding.
The Refining Process
As you face trials and difficulties, you are being refined like gold or silver, a process that purifies and strengthens your faith. Painful experiences often bring about a deeper reliance on Me and a greater understanding of My love and grace. It may be challenging, but remember that great heat is required to refine the most precious of metals to perfection.
In your pain, you may find that you become more aware of your weaknesses, as well as areas where you need to grow. As you lean on Me and seek My guidance, I can help you overcome these weaknesses and transform them into strengths. I am continually shaping you into the person I desire you to be, using every experience, both good and bad, to mold you into My image.
Growing in Trust and Perseverance
The virtue of perseverance only has value when faced with difficult circumstances. It is no secret that you will be encounter obstacles that may seem to big to bear on your own. When that happens my unfailing strength and support shall be available to all who seek.
Do not lose hope or falter because of your human limitations. There are no limitations for God, and no constraints to His enduring love for you.
In the midst of your trials, I invite you to come to Me with your questions, doubts, and fears. Share your heart with Me, and let Me speak words of comfort and reassurance to your soul. As you learn to trust Me more deeply, you will find that My peace transcends all understanding and guards your heart and mind in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).
Empathy and Compassion
Experiencing pain allows you to develop a greater sense of empathy and compassion for others who are suffering. As you walk through your own trials, you gain a deeper understanding of the pain others may be experiencing.
This understanding equips you to offer love, support, and encouragement to those who are hurting, allowing you to be My hands and feet in their lives.
By walking alongside others in their pain, you can offer them a unique perspective and understanding, rooted in your own experiences. This empathy enables you to be a source of comfort and hope for those who are struggling, reflecting My love and grace to them in their time of need.
As you grow in empathy and compassion, you will also find that your own heart is softened and changed. You will be more inclined to forgive, to show mercy, and to extend grace to those around you. In this way, your pain not only has a purpose in your own life, but it also serves to bring about transformation in the lives of others.
You Shall Emerge Brighter Than Gold & Silver
Many covet the meaningless physical treasures of this earth for they have not experienced the love of God that supersedes all earthly desires. I want you to know that you are God’s greatest treasures, and His love for you is unceasing.
The trials and heartaches you experience in this life are only temporary, but the hope of My eternal presence and love is everlasting. As you endure pain and suffering, let your heart be filled with hope, knowing that your current trials are not in vain.
They are preparing you for an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison. As you fix your eyes on the promises of My kingdom, you will find the strength and courage to persevere through your present challenges.
