Suffering can produce wisdom.
The heart of the wise is in a house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in a house of pleasure. Ecclesiastes 7:4
There are lessons in life that we can only learn through suffering. God is never the author of pain but He masterfully weaves the bad in our lives into something good. Out of the fire comes the purest gold and out of suffering comes true character. People who know to embrace the valleys of life as necessary places on life’s journey are the most radiant of people. It is in the midst of suffering and confusion that God can actually mold us best and the more we give in to what He is shaping, the more free and vibrant we become. Take a moment of stillness today as you understand that suffering can be used by God to crown your life with the deepest wisdom.
