    Have you ever wondered why God gets better results than you do? We tend to write it off to His power, but often it is His wisdom that is at play.

    The study of pain highlights that. We are currently in a very mothering season of the Church. Our theology focuses on God healing, helping and honoring us. If we would only renounce the devil and serve God, everything in our lives would be peachy.

    The inordinate focus on the mothering theology of nurture has resulted in the extreme sissification of the Church in the Western world.

    While the nurture by God and by His undershepherds is clearly taught in Scripture, so is a more stern message of God fathering us in order to unpack the treasures that He has placed in us.

    This teaching album looks at six different flavors of God-ordained pain in our lives AND the fruit that this wise, productive pain produces. Different kinds of pain produce different kinds of fruit.

    In a way, this album is a follow up to “Fractal of Two: Adrenals & Kidneys.” There we discussed the critical skill of reframing the pain in our lives around the covenants of God. Here we give some hands on tools for differentiating between the destructive pain the devil brings and the productive pain from the hand of God.

    If you are looking to hone your fathering skills, this will be an excellent tool.

    This album was released in 2013.

    This is a downloadable album of six CDs.

    Productive Pain... what a concept!

    I have had to circle back on this series about 5 times... it has rich points and heavy ponders as I look at my past, my frustration, and my whinning and complaining to man and God that my life was/is unfairly hard... After listening to this series and applying the principles now some 3-4 years... I realize God has me in a CROSS-Fit spiritual/character gym... because He loves me and wants to FATHER me to be stronger and to understand He is not cruel. He is a loving and GOOD GOOD FATHER that wants me to be a strong, healed, healthy, kingdom-focused warrior that is part of His version of Navy SEALs. So now I have learned as they say in the military to, "Embrace the Suck" and knowing that He has a purpose in EVERY productive moment of pain.

    “A” is for Apple

    Are you new? And looking at this album? You’re at the right place to start in my opinion. There is a reason this album is listed here in the beginning, there is method in the madness (and in this company you’ll find plenty of methods and madness, in a good way.) The album could’ve been called ‘THE hard life’, but it isn’t, because it has to be here in the line-up. (Either way it does sound like no fun at all, but don’t judge this book by its cover, dig deep and be brave!) I’ve been hanging around this tribe for a while, and I only discovered this album now, years down the line. This would’ve been a good place to start. I hope you start here. And that you would have a bigger view of God from the get-go! Grow big, robust and strong!

    Does God ever set up people for hard lifes?

    The Bible is full of stories in which it would appear that God might have set up people to be growers of strange and crucible extracted fruit, God isnt just a God of happy feelings and bunny faces, sometimes hes the God that creates situations that bring out the best in us through very difficult times, and the being good in the fire is part of his plan, but if you hold on through the fire, its a rare and valuable tool for Him. Isiah 45:7 talks about how he intentionally creates calamity... that's not the God they talked about in Sunday school? I want to know God, not a god of my understanding. and this album takes a look at biblical pictures of people given a pain filled life by Father, it shows common mistakes and successes in the art of growing strange and valuable fruit. Its important to study because every good tree makes good fruit, and this album gave me perspective in how to take what seemed like trash materials and turn it into a beautiful garden.

    Healing salve

    Thinking about this teaching was difficult. I didn’t want to think about, nor acknowledge hardness in life. My religiously skewed paradigm leaned more toward a mindset of pray until everything is roses and lovely. But that quit working along time ago, if it ever did. (Not in anyway knocking prayer, just saying Father had a different path than just prayer alone.) From a place of pain, with much internal consternation and protest, I listened to the gentle nudge to purchase this teaching. Initially I listened very guardedly, but a little ways in the tears slowly trickled down. I began to relax and felt soothed. It feels like structures were demolished, and the Lord established a clean, firm foundation on which to build. Just thinking about this brings tears to my eyes. Not sadness for the old, but gratefulness for the new. Shifting from fluff and stuff thinking to reality was much less painful than anticipated. In the end, I am left with the feeling this teaching is like a warm blanket of soothing comfort after a very hard time. Thank you Arthur for this balm. And thank You Father for life.
