"For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation and brings no regret, but worldly grief produces death." (2 Corinthians 7 v 10)
The word "grief" here could also be translated as "pain". What in your life causes you distress or pain, and how do you handle it? When we look at God through the lense of our pain, he may seem small, distant, uncaring and unloving, and our pain looks insurmountable. Paul is telling us in the verse above to look at our pain through the lense of a God who is all-loving, all-caring and all-knowing. Then it is the pain that seems small and distant in the face of our mighty God.
The Christian life isn't easy. We aren't promised a bed of roses, free from suffering. We are promised that the God who loves us, walks with us in each moment, never leaving our side, our Rock, our Redeemer and our Comforter.
