There Is Pain In Every Joy | Essay


As I sit in silence and darkness, overwhelmed by the joy that God, my Father put in my heart with the pitter- patter sound that the rain makes on my rooftop.

My imaginations sprout out into vision of growth because the creator sent rain…. This thoughts hit me hard with deeper reasoning of what life would have been if there was no “SORROW“.

My thought woke up, as i think about this mystery for a while,  then answers hit me into reality, that life would have no meaning without sorrow.

It would be utterly useless and no knowledge would be learnt.

What good could life have been if we don’t have any challenge? would there have been any growth?.

Pain vs Joy

I thought about a seed that grew from a concrete, i thought about the harsh weather the seed has to endure, i thought about the struggles it would undergo in order to obtain water and minerals it needs for growth, then i understood more about pain that is in joy.

Pain is the beauty in joy– For nothing grows in comfort, the joy comes after the struggles of growth, this mystery makes life complete.

I also thought about ‘BIRTH‘–  A baby is born to us today, why is it that the first emotion he or she shows is pain?

 Even though he or she has spent the last 9 months in darkness, why cry to the sense of light ?

then this made me to understand that sorrow is a huge part of human life, it could never be avoided it’s a part of who we are and we should be proud of it because it’s the first emotion we show when we are born into the light.

I thought further than birth, I think about the rich and the poor, the people in high places and the ones in low places all of them encounter difficulty at a certain time of there life, even though we all chase shadow, trying to make this world a bed of roses, in process of achieving a great wealth we still cry.

I understood pain and I accepted it as a gift from God and became proud of it because it can never be avoided.

I question my self further does God feel pain ? Then I understood this about the coming of Jesus Christ, a Supernatural being without sin was made sin and carried the sin of the whole world, the pain He endured, the agony, the suffering , even God turned His back on His only ‘BEGOTTEN SON‘ because of the sin of the whole world, crucified, died and was buried and rose in the third day.

I understand this that even God felt pain sacrificing His only son, and even Christ the only son felt more pain carrying our sin, beaten, insulted and crucified.

After thinking about this for a while I called my self a fool for being angry about my suffering and for the pain i might have felt, I called my self a fool because , God Almighty felt pain and sorrow.

Even Christ His only son felt pain and also sorrow, then who am I ? A mere mortal , a worthless dust, a worm, why then should I be angry about pain or sorrow, then I learnt understanding.

I found joy and was glad am suffering because it’s a part of the process of being what am supposed to be.

So I knelt down and thanked God for pain because he opened my eyes, to see that pain is part of who we are and am using this opportunity to tell everybody out there that is going through a difficult trial that is filled with pain and anguish that they should embrace it and don’t let it push us away from praying to God or worshiping Him because even ‘GOD’ feel pain, when we backslide and turn our back on him or choose a different path from what he has straighten for us.

let’s be proud of pain as much as we are proud of our success because weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.

Always remember that through the suffering of Christ ,crucified, died and buried, He rose from death and was honored by God, the angels and heavenly beings and even mortals.

He was given a name greater than every other name, when it’s been mentioned, every kneel bows and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

We should be proud of who we are and be filled with words of psalms and hymn, nothing last forever because Christ life is an example .
