LABOR PAINS

I remember being in the hospital…16 hours in labor, crying and shouting because of the pain that I was going through. At one point I yelled and told the Doctors. I didn’t want to go through it and told the Doctors to leave the baby inside. She looked at me and said, “These few hours of pain and agony you are going through will be nothing compared to the joy you will feel when you meet your beautiful baby girl.” And… she was absolutely right! After I delivered my daughter, I forgot about the pain I just had to endure for her to be here. Trials, disappointments, hurt, pain and tribulations is the same way. We must endure until the end to reap our blessings. In life, we will go through and through and through but when we have our eyes on the prize, our eyes on our Heavenly father, then when we are going through, and feeling the pain we will hear the voice of God, just like my Doctor said…”The pain you feel, the tribulation you are going through will make you stronger, and your blessing will come. This week I encourage you to have this mindset “what I am going through is only for a season, I will come out, and my blessing is waiting on the other side!”
