The Real Problem of Pain

Too often we think that things have to happen immediately, or they will never happen. This is especially true of pain/discomfort/unease, emotional or otherwise. When you are in the midst of it, relief cannot come soon enough. All you can think to ask is why is this happening to me? What have I done to deserve this?
Maybe what we should be asking is, what can I learn from this?
It was never in God's plan to jump in and mess with your life just because he felt like it one day. So, instead of asking why is this happening and begging for a resolution to the problem, maybe it is time to start building yourself up. I mean, if you can be content in this situation, think how you will feel when this issue is resolved. How freeing will that be?
Stop waiting idly for an answer. Seek the answer and above all practice contentment today, lest tomorrow comes to find you unprepared for the riches that are in store.
