Transmit or Transform…..

 First steps after an injury…

so tentative.

Fear mixed with “what ifs”?

A push needed beyond our feeble strength.

Our will infused with the Divine encouraging us forward.

Be it physical, emotional, or spiritual pain.

Pain….

One can transmit it….

Broadcasting all to join into the pity party of “I give up”, “Woe is me”, “No one has ever had it worse”

or….

One can allow the pain to transform…

 Stretching the whole of the person in the reality of Hope.

Pain can become the leaven that allows the dough to rise.

Pain can become the impetus for the rising to new life.

Pain and resurrection…the two really do go hand in hand.

It’s a choice.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his great mercy gave us a new birth to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead….In this you rejoice, although now for a little while you may have to suffer through various trials.” 1 Peter 1:3, 6
