When Your Name Means Pain

You are not going to change the world by the name that you have become because of the painful things that have happened to you in life. You can only change it by what God empowers you to become beyond the pain. 

1 Chronicles 4:9 Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” 10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.
