Some of you were raised by amazing parents who taught you everything you needed to know about pain. You learned how to deal with the inevitable hard knocks in life. 

But most of us struggle with pain. We ask questions that seem to never get answered. A generation is growing up misunderstanding the role of pain in their lives.

As a consequence, many young people don’t know what to do with pain. But the pain of failure and the pain of hurt feelings is normal. We need it to grow. 

Life happens to us. It’s painful and we draw conclusions, but are they the right ones? Sometimes, our parents didn’t help us. With the best of intentions, they may have sought to protect us from all kinds of pain, some of it necessary. So when we find ourselves in pain, we don’t know how to process it. Some of us get mad at God, “Why did you let this happen to me?” we ask. 

This course helps us to better understand what God had in mind when he gave us the gift of pain. Here’s the first week.

Interested in trying it out? I’ll take up to 8 people in the first group. Your commitment: To read a blog a day and to reflect on your own life for at least 15 minutes. Just put your name and email in the comment section or in an email to me at the link above.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
