Why did God allow all of this pain in my life? If He has such good plans for me, then why does life hurt so much?
In Jeremiah 29:11 it says “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” It makes one wonder why there is so much pain and suffering not only in their own lives but in the world as well.
So what do we do about the pain in our lives? When someone near and dear to us dies or is hurt in an accident or some other such tragedy, what do we typically do? We pray or we turn away.
God either causes or allows pain in your life but for one main purpose, to push you back to Him. Along your way perhaps you strayed from Him and God wanted you back. That pain you feel in your heart when you’ve lost someone, God put that there to get you to come back to Him. You can accept or reject the pain and God but God wants to be in your life. Let Him in and let Him take that pain away.
