5 Ways To Use Your Pain For Good In Your Life:

• Let it draw you closer to God and trust Him more. Worship
“We were crushed and overwhelmed … and saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us … and he did help us!” (2 Corinthians 1:8-10) (LB)

“I am glad … not because it (your troubles) hurt you but because the pain turned you to God.” (2 Corinthians 7:9) [LB]

• Let it draw you closer to others in compassion and fellowship. Community
“Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2)

• Let it grow you more like Jesus. Discipleship
“So even though Jesus was God’s Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered.” (Hebrews 5:8) [NLT]

“Suffering made Jesus perfect, and now he can save forever all who obey him.” (Hebrews 5:9) [CEV]

“Now, isn’t it wonderful all the ways in which this distress has goaded? you closer to God? You’re more alive, more concerned, more sensitive, more reverent, more human, more passionate, more responsible. Looked at from any angle, you’ve come out of this with purity of heart.” (2 Corinthians 7:11) [MSG]

• Let it make you more sensitive in serving others. Ministry
“God comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. Then, when others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. You can be sure that the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. So when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your benefit and salvation! For when God comforts us, it is so that we, in turn, can be an encouragement to you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer.” (2 Cor 1:4-6) [NLT]

• Let it be a witness to the world. Evangelism
“I want you to know, dear brothers and sisters, that everything that has happened to me here has helped to spread the Good News.” (Philippians 1:12) [NLT]

“In everything we do, we try to show that we are true servants of God. We patiently endure suffering and hardship and trouble of every kind.” (2 Corinthians 6:4) [LB]
