In God’s economy, nothing is wasted. Through failure, we learn a lesson in humility which is probably needed, painful though it is.
How thankful I am today, to know that all my past failures were necessary for me to be where I am now. Through much pain came experience and, in suffering, I became obedient. When I sought God, as I understand Him, He shared His treasured gifts. Through experience and obedience, growth started, followed by gratitude. Yes, then came peace of mind-living in and sharing sobriety.
