"Turn that pain into power, every day every hour."
What pain are you experiencing today? What hurt is raw and real and overpowering?
What you do next will make a difference. Will you choose to allow that pain to define you, becoming a victim to bitterness? Or, will you choose to invite the healing Love of Jesus into it, asking Him for His power to strengthen you to not only face it, but overcome it so much so that you can allow that painful circumstance to be used to help someone else when the time comes?
I know this song speaks to something much bigger than our own personal pain, but the words, in the context of faith, are so powerful.
"All the kicks and all the blows
He won't ever let it show
'Cause he's stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow
When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That's how a superhero learns to fly....
Turn that pain into power, every day every hour."
You my friend are a Superhero in the making.
By God's grace you get up day after day to face whatever it is you need to face.
You are stronger than you know.
Your heart of steel, forged by the Love of Christ surging in you, is growing.
By the strength of God you will be able to continue fighting until His good work has been accomplished through you, whom He created to fulfill a great purpose in this world.
Whatever pain you experience, turn it over to the merciful hands of Jesus. In that choice there is power beyond anything you can imagine to not only receive the healing you need, but to also learn to fly because if it.
