Starting Over

When God allows pain

I was struck by this quote from The Joy Dare program's blog, A Holy Experience: "God doesn't allow pain unless He's allowing something new to be born."
What wise words! Newness so often carries pain in the beginning. Whether it's birthing a child, writing a book, moving to a new place, or beginning a new life, the machinations of bringing forth something unique can be very painful. Yet, if what we bring forth is worthwhile, we almost always end up concluding that yes, the pain was worth it.
