Hidden hurts do not heal and simply ignoring the pain does not make it go away. There is a benefit to the pain you feel, if you work to overcome it. The long suffering produces a perfection.
If there was another way, it would be so. The route through pain is the most efficient and the most inconvenient. It will cause you to question all things. The purpose, the gift and the call are made clear in these trials.
What you are called to do is meaningless without the character to accomplish it. The gift unless tested through hard times cannot be trusted. The highly gifted must be highly humble, otherwise the gift will become a god in the eyes of men.
The purpose is forged in you based on a preponderance of facts. The problems I have assigned to you for solving are plentiful and all around you. It may seem overwhelming now, but eventually you will overwhelm them.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
