When we make it through times of tribulation some major some minor but always soul altering; One last piece of growth is to share what we learned or didn't learn. When surviving suffering, if you tell no one it is as if you never conquered.
This entered my thoughts tonight as I pounded out my sprint workout on the trusty treadmill. As I recalled some of my past heartbreaks, mistakes, and just plan disasters I also remembered what I learned, how it molded me, and how it shapes my relationship with Jesus.
Everyone in life is dealt hardships, mine I have come to realize is that the devil attacks my family because that is the whole element I have tried to piece together since I was a child. Knowing that he will try his hardest makes me determined to see him fail and God come out victorious.
“When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.”
Psalm 94:18 NIV
How humbling is it to know that when we are slipping His love is right there to make sure we are supported. It doesn't say that we won't eve fall, it says He will support me. Take the opportunity to grow from hardships, share your story, and if possible don't repeat sin. Grow on Grace,
