Sharing Grape Stuff’s Day 8: Project GRAPEful!
Project GRAPEful continues…Recap:
We aim to bless our readers who, for the most part, have had a very difficult year in 2015. For the next 21 days until Thanksgiving day, we will be sharing inspiring stories and things we are “GRAPEful” for. We pray these tidbits bless you and that you and your family will find peace and strength each day. (Aside from being able to enter to win prizes which you can read more about by clicking the link above.)
I’m posting bite sized pieces each day of my article, The Blessings of Pain. Here is part two:
1. Pain makes you compassionate.
The people who have suffered the most, tend to be the most compassionate. The more struggles a person goes through, the more they have compassion for others who are going through difficult times. I’ve known some amazingly compassionate people who consistently take time to support, uplift and help others. I almost always find that they have suffered a great deal in their own lives and have a calling to be of help to others. There is a saying, “hurt people hurt people,” but I have found that struggling people help struggling people because they seem to have a heart for others and feel their pain as if it were their own–because it was (or is).
So today, I’m thankful for the understanding pain has given me to be compassionate to others who are suffering or struggling with chronic issues.
What are your struggles and what are you thankful for today? Please share as a comment down below this post. And please share this post with your Facebook family and other social media friends to inspire them to come and share their own as well. We’ll be praying for each person listed below.
