Painful

I am coming to terms with
The fact that
When I see reminders
Of my sinfulness,
I will feel pain.
And it will hurt
A lot.

There’s a difference between feeling pain
And feeling sorrow.

One is a physical response to a stimulus.
The other is a choice.

Painfully joyful.
You can choose to be joyful
Even when thorns pierce you to the point,

You can still rejoice
That God is amazing!
And that His grace is sufficient!
Even in our weaknesses,
His strength is perfect!

I won’t ask for escape anymore.
I will pursue this,
even if it costs me everything.
