There is a song by Nicole C. Mullins where she sings that; “The not so good ole days can make you weak or make you brave.” , and I love the message here.
Most of us can think back to times when we were hurt, rejected, or severely criticized by our peers our others but, the truth is, those times can either make us weak or brave, as we move forward and face life today.
Philippians 3:13 says, “…One thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” and in Genesis 50:20, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good…”
So let’s be brave!
Let’s press on despite past hurts, stronger than we were before, knowing that God is working all things together for our good. : )
