No of course not I am human, it would be a lie to say I accept profound suffering, but guess what it comes ready or not. That is the reality it isn’t about us wanting it or being ready for it or accepting it. It simply is and we have to respond in it and through it.
In my current state I can not truly give a truthful answer to this question.
If it’s God’s will, I need to be willing. I only pray that God allows me the heart and mind to be willing. Not my will, but His will be done. As Job said in Job 13:15 “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.” Jesus said in John 16:33 “In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
I don’t think we always have the choice to accept it or not. Sometimes it just comes to us and we have to deal with it. I think the knowledge that great wisdom comes from profound suffering is comforting, but I don’t know that I would actively accept profound suffering if I had the choice.
My flesh is not willing, but by faith I can conquer profound suffering.
I would like to say “yes”, but the real answer might well be “no”. I don’t know that anyone really wants to suffer no matter the outcome.
Although I know this to be true, I have to say that I would like to have great wisdom without profound suffering.
I believe that wisdom does come from profound suffering and I am willing to accept it. I can accept it because I believe that I do not go through it alone. God is with me. If He feels it is what I need to get me to where He needs me to be, then I am all in. It doesn’t mean that it excites me, but I know that He will not give me more than I can handle, and I will come through it stronger.
I’m willing, but I hope that God will let this cup pass me by. I think I’m afraid that if the suffering is too intense, I may deny God and turn away from Him.
