Series Quote on PAIN

Anak Allah menderita sampai mati bukan agar manusia tidak menderita, melainkan agar penderitaan mereka boleh serupa dengan penderitaanNYA
GEORGE MCDONALD, Unspoken Sermons
God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world
C. S. Lewis

Haha, ini quote dari salah satu Christian hero saya, CS Lewis, Penderitaan adalah pengeras suara Allah bagi dunia yang tuli.

nice :slight_smile:

The real problem is not why some pious, humble, believing people suffer, but why some do not.
C. S. Lewis

Bagi kekekalan, Penderitaan di Bumi bagaikan menginap semalam di hotel yang tidak menyenangkan

madame Guyon

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
Mother Theresa
Nothing, how little so ever it be, if it is suffered for God's sake, can pass without merit in the sight of God.
Thomas a Kempis

Manusia adalah makhluk yang menderita,

Lembaran sejarah mereka diisi oleh penderitaan

Bahkan ketika mereka bahagia, mereka dibayangi ketakutan kehilangan kebahagiaan itu

dan

ketika kebahagiaan itu pergi, mereka dibayangi ketakutan jika kebahagiaan itu tak pernah kembali lagi

Me Like this! One of my fave of her Q :slight_smile:

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

then she also said…
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat

“If you insist on thinking that this remedy is beneficial for the sick person and it turns out that he is harmed by it, God, Who regards the heart, will not condemn you; for He knows that, although you harmed this person, you wanted to help him. But if someone who is experienced tells you what to do, and you disdain to listen to him and do what you think best, this is arrogance and self-will” (116).

“Jika anda bersikeras berpikir bahwa obat ini bermanfaat bagi orang sakit dan ternyata bahwa ia malah dirugikan oleh obat tersebut, Allah, yang melihat hati, tidak akan menghukum anda karena Dia tahu bahwa, meskipun anda merugikan orang ini, anda sesungguhnya ingin membantunya. Tetapi jika ada orang yang berpengalaman memberitahu anda apa yang harus anda lakukan, namun anda meremehkan untuk mendengarkan nasehatnya dan malah melakukan apa yang anda pikir terbaik menurut Anda, inilah suatu bentuk kesombongan dan ketundukan pada kemauan sendiri”(116).

St. Barsanouphios

Orang-orang yang lapar mencari makanan dan orang-orang yang sakit mencari kesembuhan justru karena mereka tahu bahwa setelah makan atau setelah disembuhkan, jatuh bangunnya kehidupan yang biasa masih menanti mereka.

(C. S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain)

“I DON’T CARE!" Harry yelled at them, snatching up a lunascope and throwing it into the fireplace. “I’VE HAD ENOUGH, I’VE SEEN ENOUGH, I WANT OUT, I WANT IT TO END, I DON’T CARE ANYMORE!”
“You do care,” said Dumbledore. He had not flinched or made a single move to stop Harry demolishing his office. His expression was calm, almost detached. "You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.”

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

If I thought I could help you by putting you into an enchanted sleep and allowing you to postpone the moment when you would have to think about what has happened tonight, I would do it. But I know better. Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Orang yang tidak pernah menderita, apa yang diketahuinya?

berhenti sembunyi dari masalah, selesaikan dengan pengendalian diri :angel:

We are puzzled and bewildered whenever we see suffering in this world because we have become accustomed to the mercy and the long-suffering of God. Amazing grace is no longer amazing to us.

(R. C. Sproul)

The road to the promised land runs past Sinai.

(C. S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain)

“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.

Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but
for the heart to conquer it.”

― Rabindranath Tagore, Collected Poems And Plays Of Rabindranath Tagore
