The most significant, underrated, and under taught spiritual discipline is learning to turn heartache and brokenness into the fuel that builds us up into Christ likeness. No, it does not come natural. Actually often times we “really spiritual” folks turn away from the situations that would produce the most fruit. We choose to curse the devil, entertain our way out of it, or avoid the pain in some other way; this fuels the flesh and the devil, our two most significant opponents. All the while God desires us to bring our painful situation to him, receive proper healing, and be endowed with the power and perspective of Christ.
To build on this concept meditate on James 1:2-4
