Personally I feel I’m only at the very beginning of this process which started years ago with an acknowlegment of my own pain. Now it appears the God has designed our souls to experience pain to show us when we are in any way out of harmony with her laws and wishes to give us her Love abundantly and without restriction.
It all makes me appreciate that beautiful parable/analogy recorded in the Bible of the Prodigal Son. The story is a great summary of mankind’s walking away from God and her laws, the pain and suffering that results and God’s attitude to us, as a loving parent constant and waiting for us to desire real change and real Love, to be open to rehabilitation.
There’s a song for every occasion!
