The protective purpose of pain // 24-09-19

“Sometimes it takes a painful experience to make us change our ways.”
Proverbs‬ ‭20:30‬ ‭GNT

Pain can send me running to the comfort zone to avoid it and sedate it, or it can threaten to push me over the edge into the panic zone where I just lose hope and give up. But it can also wake me up, like an alarm bell, telling me that something is wrong and I need to do something about it! If I choose to listen and learn and change what I’m doing then pain has been my friend, my protector and not the enemy! 🙏🏼
