BY MARY EISENACHER
Some of the greatest times of pain have been unveiled as the biggest times of spiritual growth in my life.
Times of physical pain have birthed great intercessory times with God. Those times took my attention off of myself and onto the praises of God for others. Previous comfort, in some cases, had taken me into some apathy. That was broken in times of pain. Supercharged with a cause to pray for others going through similar circumstances kept me sane.
The mental anguish of grief has propelled me to seek the peace of God so many times. Losing loved ones always rocks my world in a way that brings forth the reality of mortality. God is always faithful as I put my trust in Him and think of the blessings of the finished work of Christ that brings forth an eternal life with Him. Praise His Holy Name!
