The sorrow that is according to the will of God produces repentance without regret, leading to salvation. – 2 Corinthians 7:10
Have you been in a complete darkness? As in total darkness that you almost had the thought of losing life, and that every waking moment was dreadful for you. Instead of thanking for life, you sighed because it will be another day of pain and hurt. A heavy day were you can’t stop crying and hurting.
Human as we are, sometimes we forget that God is there that we live life carelessly. Then one sudden moment, God will take away our carelessness by putting us to failure that can break our pride, so as we can have a sensitive and teachable heart. And that’s what we call a “Godly Sorrow”.
Can you name people today who seem to listen carefully to God? Those whose hearts are sensitive to God’s spirit? I can almost guarantee that these are people who know what it is to be broken and bruised. They have scars to prove it.
Failure and pain is God’s way to make us appreciate the pleasures of life. A hidden message that provide us wisdom and values we couldn’t learn the other way.
So every time you feel the dark moment, remind yourself that it is God lighting your directions in life. Do not be afraid and trust HIS ways.
