It is only through strife that we grow and learn. It is only through grief that we find our true self and see the hand of God work. There is no rainbow without rain, no light without dark, no good without bad. This is the way that things work. It was only because of my darkest hour that I found my self pregnant only because of that did I become sober and sought God. Only because of her that I found Him and even that took the pangs of birth. Only because I was damaged so horribly did I keep pursuing Him and only because of pain did I become redeemed. The quest for Heaven begins with sin. The path to Heaven is steeped in pain but when you find Him here on earth looking you in the face, you look back and see that every excruciating step was an apprenticeship and you see that you have grown through Him beyond your wildest expectations. What else is there?
