Pain can come from accident, injury or sickness. For these we seek out medical treatment.

If medical treatment has not helped, the pain may be something allowed by God so a person draws close to God for his grace and comfort.

God Draws us to him in many way.

The story, though, is well written.

Great story that speaks volumes in message and tone. So many seek "healing" and ask "why" when it doesn't happen. That is when faith and holding onto "His will" is crucial. Your story expressed that quite well.

Good job.

God bless~

Sometimes we are more "free" when we suffer some thorn in the flesh - free from sin that is. Peter wrote: "Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind, for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God." 1 Peter 4:1-2
But since none of us wish to suffer, it is a challenge to have this mindset!

Very relevant to people in this situation, asking God the why and why not. I'm glad faith in Christ won out. I wonder if someone facing this right now as they read would benefit from the inner dialogue that led to accepting what was. That turning point that could lead someone else to the same conclusion. This has the possibility of impacting someone powerfully.
