For two weeks now, our Coach (Pastor) has been discussing about pain. She would like us to understand that pain is unavoidable but we can learn a lot from it.
The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you're in control of your life. If you don't, life controls you.
Last Sunday, she showed us a video that made me crying all through out. It is a video where God chisel's someone. Can you imagine being chiseled? How fun can that be? You being shaped or cut with a chisel! Ouch! But that is true with pain, it is never fun, however, it can model us to what God would like us to become.
Here is the link to the video that I was referring to. I hope that just like the guy, in the skit, we will also embrace pain and be willing to be changed to His image no matter what it takes.
