Who goes through life without bruises and knockdowns? No one. But do you know who comes out on the other side with healing and strength? Those who make up in their minds that they want a different way of experiencing life. The good news is that there's no reason why you can't be that person. The Bible says that the steps of a good man or woman are ordered by the Lord. Yet sometimes those steps take us down a road of pain, disappointment, misfortune, and trials that we would not have chosen for ourselves. It's at these times that we can experience tremendous growth and breakthrough in our circumstances and in our faith by allowing God to work all things (even unpleasant things) together for our good.
