Today’s blog post is a follow-up from yesterday’s blog post Shared Scars. Today is about how we get some of those scars – from our life experiences, both joyful and challenging.

I’ve found myself in the past that when I thought I was doing ok, and kind of put God into the background of my life instead of keeping him in at the centre of my life, that was when the most challenging part of my life began!

God knew I had moved away from me, and even when I went through the darkest of times in my life, instead of turning back to him, I simply thought he’d deserted me, so continued to ignore him. Now looking back on that time I realises that during that time I went through this experience

When I came out the other side of that very dark time in my life, I began to realise that it wasn’t me who got me through that time, it wasn’t my friends or family, it was God. He hadn’t deserted me during that time, instead he’d been at my side the whole time, and had in fact lead me through those dark days, and led me to the light.

I learned from that time in my life. I learned that I can’t live my life without God at the centre of it. I now know that even when I have some difficult times, God is still with me, and will guide me through those each days.

I’ve learned from the mistakes I’ve made in my life, have you?
