Repurpose

Today's Devotional

Repurpose

Unforced

We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. 2 Corinthians 1:8-9
Who better to help someone dealing with addiction than a person who has also struggled with an addiction and has found victory in their recovery. It would be extremely difficult for someone whose struggle is not codependency to attempt to lead a person who is dealing with codependency through the recovery process. God allowed us to struggle for a purpose. He is repurposing the pain of our past to be used to guide others out of their current pain.

God did not create the pain we experienced. We live in a broken world, and pain is going to be a part of life. God gave us free will and we have used that free will to hurt ourselves and others. Now, we can use that same free will to love God and others. The struggles we endured are now being used to glorify God and to light a path through a dark, hurting world.

Pain also teaches us that we can not go through life relying solely on our own strength. We need Christ to get us through each and every day. We also cannot waste our pain on ourselves. Keeping our pain to ourselves causes us to live outside the light of the Holy Spirit. When we share our pain, we experience healing. We also connect with the people with whom we are sharing. A pain shared is now a wound that is in the process of healing.

Heavenly Father, You take all our pain and repurpose it in order for us to serve others and to glorify You. All our past struggles are now being used to lift up others and to demonstrate the might of Your healing power. You, Father God, never waste a hurt. Use my struggles to reach others for the Kingdom of Heaven. it’s in Christ’s name I pray. Amen.
