Why God Allows Pain

I'm going through a time of a lot of pain and grief in my life right now. But I still believe that God is using the pain for my good, like a father disciplining his child.

Why God Allows Pain

A plant that never tasted rain,
An athlete that never stretched,
Ore that never walked through fire,
So would I be without trials…

You prune a tree, it gives more fruit,
You bury a seed, it grows a plant,
And I’m made stronger through the trials…

Why does God allow pain in my life?
Because
He loves me.
