A Thorn Not Wasted

"No pain is wasted." Rick Warren
Saddleback CR Summit

In the midst
of my failure
I reached for you

Pulling me from
the wreckage
Picking up
the pieces
of my brokenness

Gluing the
shattered fragments
of my soul
Knitting my
torn emotions

Weaving the strands
of my mind
Molding the clay
of my character

Sealing the cracks
of my faith

the healer
the redeemer
the saving grace

Taking my pain
using it for good
not wanted for me
yet never wasted

I challenge you to look inside yourself and find that pain, allow God to help you heal, and use it for good to further God's kingdom.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I was a broken clay pot, and you are right, those thorns in my life have a definite purpose. And when the day is over, I praise and thank God daily for His Love and Grace and Healing in my life. Yes, healing is a choice, pain does have itís purpose, and telling others through our writing is one of the ways we can share these truths. May your joy be increased through your writing for our Lord.
