"Your greatest ministry probably will come from your deepest hurt, if you are honest with yourself, others and God to share it. Pain causes growth. Purpose does not prevent you from pain. God uses pain to build purposes in our lives. God's number one goal for our lives is to be like Christ. If so, He is going to make us go through everything Jesus went through. Somethings, we only learn through pain. Life is like a railroad track. No matter how good things are in our lives, there are always something bad we are working on."
~~Rick Warren, best selling author of The Purpose Driven Life
"God whispers to us through our pleasure and shouts to us through our pain."
