What Does Your Pain Drive You To?

Self reflection can be tiring, but I would assume fairly essential to recognizing what in life may need changed.  So this is the question I’ve been chewing on lately.  Do I turn to the right “things” when life is hard?  When I’m overwhelmed?  When I’m ______ (you can fill in the blank).

More importantly, I have been examining what my initial reactions are…what’s my default position when the going get’s tough?  Who or what do I turn to when I need comfort?

Am I facing the pain, acknowledging it and addressing it OR am I numbing it in an attempt to pretend it doesn’t exist?

I’m not necessarily liking the answers.

What does your pain drive you to?  Who or what do you turn to when you need comfort?

God continues to remind me that He desires to be my comfort.  He wants to be the person I call on in my time of need.  He wants to be the first person I think of running to, the one I pour my heart out to.  He wants to soothe my fears, be my hope and bring His peace.

He wants it for me and I know He wants it for you too.

“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.” – 2 Corinthians 1:3 (NLT)
