No Pain No Gain

Sometimes when we do the things we feel are right, especially when we feel we are following God’s plan for our lives, we experience pain, affliction, friction and sadness. The Church calls this redemptive suffering. But, it’s still hard.

Sometimes (in fact, usually) conversion is painful.
