We are all on a journey, and often as we look back we can see lessons in that rocky path. At the time our challenges are difficult and we wish to hurry through them. However, it is important to look back and ask the Lord what we can learn from our experiences. Solomon reminds us: “For the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity” (Proverbs 24:16). Can you look back and remember your difficulties through eyes of understanding and acceptance?
