The Joy of Anguish

I don't know if you've ever felt anguish. That feeling you get when you are suffering terribly for some reason. Whether it is caused by a realization of sins, suffering of family passings. Perhaps health reasons. I don't know. I felt this for 5 days recently and it was horrible. I never want to feel it again. The Lord allowed me to feel this anguish so that I would see how bad it is and turn to Him. Also that I would appreciate NOT feeling it all the more. I'm thankful for that. The Lord is wonderful, all knowing and all merciful.

  1. It seems to me the length of anguish is related to how quickly I can fully turn to the Savior and give the burden to Him. After that, though the sorrow, pain and hurt remain, the anguish is gone.

    Let me know if I can do anything for you. :)
