    This is such a good quote. Sometimes pain becomes such a part of our identity that we forget who we are without the pain. I head a speaker talk about a horrific abusive marriage, ten years after she had been set free and was happily married and the pain was still there. I think she was still holding on to the pain because she thought it gave her a platform and made her interesting so she relived the abuse every time she spoke. She was missing the best part of her story. If we ask, I believe Jesus will take the pain and leave the story. I just read a devotional from Girl Friends in God called the Foxer Upper. that memntioned being comfortable with pain of being hurt by someone rather than forgiving. She connected holding on to a faulty view of pain to self esteem which I found interesting. “Low self-esteem- Some of us have built an entire identity around a hurt. The attention we gain from the wrong we have suffered defines who we are. We cherish the pain and refuse to relinquish it for the sake of forgiveness.”

    I always say… in therapy we move forward to a “final” step which is acceptance. But God moves us forward to a step beyond acceptance, redemption. Where we replace our pain with promise. 🙂
