Pain Thankingly Thursday

Thankful.  His Word says, "

"...always give thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ..."

Sitting here with my currently painful neck, I'm drawn to remember I should be giving thanks as well ....'not to waste my suffering.' 

(1 Peter 4:13 CEB)
Instead, rejoice as you share Christ’s suffering. You share his suffering now so you may also have overwhelming joy when his glory is revealed.

Resting in pain gives time to think on His words and realize my pain will not last or impact me anywhere close to Christ's. 

 John 8:31
"If you continue in my word, then you are truly Disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free." Blessings,
