Your Pain Can Be A "Place of Springs"
How can one's worst pain or circumstances turn into a "place of springs?" A place of life and redemption? In the simple passage found in Psalm 84, you find the answer - "Blessed are those whose strength is in You, who has set their hearts on pilgrimage, as they pass through the valley of Baca (weeping), they make it a place of springs" (vv. 5, 6). If you are currently in the valley of weeping, there is a way for it to become a place to build on. By depending on God's strength and not your own, He can bring life to the driest, most painful moments of your life. He can take all your sufferings and wounds and turn it into a "place of springs." What a dramatic way to move into your better future!
Don't forget your "place of springs." It's an exciting factor that can keep you from giving up.
