Strength in Sorrow

You will enter into strength through sorrow. Sorrow is not the object; it’s simply the canal that the object comes though. Anytime you have sorrow, it is a sign that God is trying to get something through you and to you.

For every struggle in your life, God accomplishes something in your character and in your spirit. No matter what kind of pain you are holding, you have to release it just like a mother giving birth to a child. Pain doesn’t fall on its own. It’s got to be released. The same thing with us… we have to release the pain and get the promise that the Lord has prepared for us. But we can never claim that promise if we are too busy keeping and suppressing the pain inside us. Just let it go.

The past hurts; the pain is genuine. However, you must learn to get in touch with something other than your pain. If you do not have desire, you won’t have the tenacity to resurrect. Desire will come back. After the pain is over, desire follows, because it takes desire to be productive again.
