Friend, our pasts hold redemptive potential beyond what we may understand at the current moment.
Areas of vulnerability or weakness indicate where greater structure or focus may be needed, both in the present and in future situations. There’s no shame in partnering with wisdom and community in new ways that promote wellness and life.
Our pasts may also indicate potential areas of calling and growth. Where we have experienced the greatest struggles in life can be the place where our greatest gifts are formed and refined.
Whether it’s in relationships, mental or emotional health, physical wellness, following our dreams, or another area, the strength, hope and peace we contend for and discover in the process are treasures that can bless others. Take heart. Remember that unexpected future blessings may come from past or present struggles.
