Healing Old Wounds

Healing Old Wounds

Every challenging encounter, troubling situation, or episode of frustration is an opportunity in disguise. It’s true. Scripture makes it clear that we will face trials and hardships and also that these same hardships can be opportunities for growth and healing (Romans 8:28). What if we looked at every trouble as a schoolroom for learning? Might we face it differently? What if we delved into every challenge asking what we are to learn from it? Each of our trials can make us stronger, healthier persons. Each struggle can give us a window into our personality, challenging us to grow. Today, when you face inevitable difficulties, discover what learning is available to you.
