    Pain quotes by:    

We do not wisely when we vent complaint and censure. We cry out for a little pain, when we do but smile for a great deal of contentment.

    Author: Owen Feltham

I am not a theologian or a scholar, but I am very aware of the fact that pain is necessary to all of us. In my own life, I think I can honestly say that out of the deepest pain has come the strongest conviction of the presence of God and the love of God.

    Author: Elisabeth Elliot

God intentionally allows you to go through painful experiences to equip you for ministry to others.

    Author: Rick Warren

Don't waste your pain; use it to help others.

    Author: Rick Warren

Your greatest ministry will most likely come out of your greatest hurt.

    Author: Rick Warren

If you had never known physical pain in your life, how could you appreciate the nail scarred hands with which Jesus Christ will meet you?

    Author: Joni Eareckson Tada

For the believer all pain has meaning; all adversity is profitable. There is no question that adversity is difficult. It usually takes us by surprise and seems to strike where we are most vulnerable. To us it often appears completely senseless and irrational, but to God none of it is either senseless or irrational. He has a purpose in every pain He brings or allows in our lives. We can be sure that in some way He intends it for our profit and His glory.

    Author: Jerry Bridges

You will never understand pleasure without pain.

    Author: T.D. Jakes

We may think that severity (as God leads His children) is inconsistent with what we know of God's gentleness and compassion. But that is because we do not appreciate how seriously God loves us, and how determined He is that we should have His best, even if it means pain.

I do not think that we should look upon painful experiences too pessimistically. Surely they are more profitable than we think at the time we are going through the anguish connected with them. But if they are to be of any benefit to us, we must, in the first place, be truthful and not begin to practice deception, that is, excuse and defend our slovenly prayer life. We must admit our weakness in prayer, admit that we are faced with a problem which cannot be solved by our own efforts.

    Author: Ole Hallesby

Being angry with God is quite common. People frequently ask, "If God is good, all-powerful, and full of love for us, why didn't He stop the thing that caused the pain?" This is where Satan seeks to build a wall between God and the hurting person. He seizes the opportunity to say, "God isn't good, and He can't be trusted." However, we know according to the Word of God, the truth is not in Satan--he is a liar and the father of lies.

    Author: Joyce Meyer

Any discussion of how pain and suffering fit into God's scheme ultimately leads back to the cross.

    Author: Philip Yancey
