Justice for my Pain

Ever since I became addicted to the show “Joan of Arcadia” (a moment of silence please…) I’ve begun to imagine what it would be like to have conversations with God. I’ve decided that maybe it’s time to start sharing some of these discussions… Maybe they’re not just for me! Here is my most recent…

Why is it that in reality the heroes are also the villains… Why is it that the people who change my life for the better eventually turn around to cause me so much pain?

Kevin, the world of heroes and villains as separate entities, is not the world I created. Life was created by choice. I chose you and gave you the ability to choose as you see fit. You need to stop trying to define people in order to label them. People aren’t good or bad, that’s something that just can’t be measured, it’s the choices we make in life that are quantitative. There aren’t heroes or villains but heroic or villainous choices. It gives each person in each situation in each moment the choice to follow their selfish nature or to step outside of themselves into something beyond.
The ideas you have of villains and heroes are your ideas not mine. It’s you trying to get justice for those who are causing you pain. Just because you feel pain does not automatically mean that someone has presented you with some form of evil or evil decision and just because you feel that pain does not give you the right to start judging those who are the source of that pain. See, pain can be an indicator of good relationships and influences as well. The pain in your life is a big part of your story and can only be understood once your story has reached it’s end. Choose to endure, it’s the only way pain will find it’s purpose.
