You’ve probably never heard of Dr. June McCarroll, but she’s a woman who truly left her mark on the world. Born in Nebraska, she was a general practitioner who lived in California. Interestingly enough, her claim to fame lies outside the world of medicine. She had an accident which triggered her wild success story. That is why you must invest your pain and not waste it. Life is a battlefield and it was a cross that gave birth to the crown. What does not kill you will make you stronger.
One day while driving, her car was brushed by another car and she determined to do something about cars that brushed others and scared others off the road. That is why you must always remember that, pain allowed by God is for a reason to bless your world. God does not allow pain to make you leave a painful life. He wants to ride your pain, using it as a megaphone to announce his glory to the world. That’s how God deals with people. He wants to turn your current weaknesses, failures, trials into a megaphone to announce his glory. This woman would have gone to her house to whine, murmur, complain and question God on why her beautiful car was dented that day, but instead, she asked the question that millions forget to ask in a crisis: “WHY DID GOD ALLOW THIS?” The “WHY” will always lead to the “WHAT.”
Dear Brother (and sisters) worry is a total waste of time. it doesn’t change anything. All it does is steal your joy and keeps you very busy doing nothing. And remember that your battle are for a reason, are for a season (not forever) and you must invent your pain and not spend it murmuring. Yes! Pain can either be invested or spent.
You will not be reading today’s post if I turned my battles of yesteryear into a murmuring theatre. Turn your experience into developmental activities in your community, office or family. INVEST YOUR PAIN! God in his mercy gave me the grace to invest my disappointments, failures and mistakes. Yes indeed, life is like a game of chess and you must learn to play it wisely. Life can sometimes be very tough but without your challenges, life will not be life. The downs of your life are the ladders to the ups which make life more enjoyable. A wise man said: “Never just sit down and dream, set your dream and chase it until you make it. Never give up.”
Dr. June McCarroll invested her pain and made it. Likewise, Doctor Sean Stephenson, a man who refused to be what the world tagged him and grew up to become a world celebrity and becoming a blessing to humanity and you too can if you can invest your pain to shame the devil.
As you go out today, determine not to murmur, cry, or complain instead invest your pain and hold on! Keep Calm and surely your pain will fetch you your success on your business, work, marriage etc.
