Ignoring pain doesn’t make it go away.
The world we live in is a broken place where bad things happen and life can be hard.
Sometimes believers in Christ can convince themselves that admitting their world is dark with pain or suffering or questions diminishes the power of God–that it speaks ill of God or that it means God is insufficient to uphold us in our weakness.
If I pretend that I’m never afraid, or that I never experience darkness, I am denying others my aid.
Even worse, I may be shaming them to silence, sending the message that if they are experiencing pain, something is wrong with THEM.
