Pain is God's Megaphone.

Hi guys, I like to share this thoughts from the http://www.christnotes.org website. I hope you will be blessed in this post. Keep going and God bless.

When life is going well, it can be easy to forget God. So, sometimes God will use painful circumstances -- difficulties, trials, and troubles -- to get our attention and remind us of our need for Him.
In James 1:2-4, we are instructed to rejoice in trials: Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Why are trials good for us? Because they make us more mature -- that is, closer to God. So, when you feel the pain of life know that God is with you.

The way you know you've been given life, hope, and a future is when you begin giving those away to everyone else.

In the same way, if you've experienced God's miraculous work in your life (e.g., salvation), you don't have to try really hard to force yourself to tell others about God; it just comes naturally—it's what you want to do. What He did for you was so great that you want to brag about Him. But in order to come to the point in life where you can't help but talk about God, you first must experience the greatness of God. As the psalmist says, you need to taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8).
