Feel It Before You Fix It
When you are in pain, your first instinct is doing whatever necessary to fix the problem. Instead of the fight or flight response, you want to fix or flee. Could God be asking you to choose a third option? Feel it before you try to fix it or flee from it. Pain is a matchless teacher and reaches us in ways complacent pleasure never will.
“He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.” (Malachi 3:3 NIV)
