Your biggest pain may be what you're called to.
Does that sound strange? Too simple?
Well, if there is a bigger purpose to this life (and I believe there is, do you?) then even the pain we've experienced becomes part of our training to make us fully us, fully human, fully alive. It's the real life stuff resume that interviewers wouldn't know to ask for. Yet, we now know first hand that the deep wounds and sharp pain shaped us and made us who we really are. Others don't know, can't know... but possibly should know.
Still: Who of us hasn't asked "Why me?" in the midst of mayhem?
Yes, some of the pain was caused by our own poor choices, selfishness or wrecklessness. We were unloving to others and ruined relationships. We were unwise and headed down dead ends. We ate what we shouldn't have and gave in to lustful "feed me's" of our bodies. We abandoned faith and thought we were just so smart. We were allured, addicted and depressed. Yet, somehow, by the grace of God we headed in other directions and began to heal. Do you think maybe, just maybe, we now have something others need?
Got pain? Maybe what now bugs you and what others seem so oblivious to is a sign post to something you're supposed to do. What bothers you may become that unique something you offer as your true gift. Your personal pain becomes the life-giving route to heal others and create a better life on this planet. Wouldn't that be the ultimate defeat to what went so wrong for you?
Can you see through the eyes or your pain? Please help the rest of us.
