About The From Pain To Purpose SeriesI started this series to show how God can use anyone and turn their lives around. I also want to show how everything that we go through is for a higher purpose.
While interviewing James, I asked him if he had a message to share with those who may be going through a similar experience or experiences such as the ones that he went through and what that message would be. James said that his message to the world would be:
'With all the struggles, problems, and issues that people have, it all comes with being an human being. All of that in one particular point in life can cease if there is hope and that hope is something that can only come from Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. He walked the earth so that we could live. He carried all of our faults and pains on his shoulders to the cross. God had a problem with us and we have to realize that there is an issue with us. God is good and we are not and in God's eyes we do evil. The good thing is that Jesus died for our sins, He paid the price for us so that we can live . We no longer have to pay the price of death if we believe in Jesus and we have hope. God says that his burden is light and his yoke is easy(Matthew 11:30). Believing in God does not mean that everything will be easy. Our situations may not change, but our perspective will. If we continue to hold on to our pains and all of the things that we have done wrong, then we will always feel like the world is crashing on us. Instead of living life thinking you are going to die anyway, live life to go to Heaven. Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life(Proverbs 13:12). "
