God is in control of all things, and He allows His children to go through the good and the bad, the easy and the hard, the understandable and the confusing.
He's the one who keeps us from going off the rails and crashing our lives altogether and I am so thankful for that!
The question then becomes, “God what do you want me to learn from this, and how do you want me to become more like you through this?”
I came across this series of questions and concepts that really helped me grasp and begin to understand the fact that God doesn’t waste a hurt.
This reflection and history process was a very encouraging process for me, as I realized that I have many things to be thankful for. Many times I have taken for granted the events and people that have helped shape me, and this process has helped me to grasp the importance of making the most of every opportunity that has been given to me.
