“Pain is a sign of Life”

I heard Hank Williams Jr.’s daughter utter this quote on the news tonight.

Three years after a near fatal car crash, she was performing on stage for the first time tonight. At one point during her 6 weeks in the hospital, she asked her doctor when the pain would end. After having been brought back from death, he encouraged her by telling her, “Pain is a sign of life.”

Too often we pray for God to take the pain away. Have you ever stopped to think that the daily burdens that tend to overwhelm us could actually be reminders to enjoy what we have?

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” – Hebrews 12:11
