When we faced that we could not change the past no matter how much we wished, it seemed to be of real help to know God was going to let us use our past in ways we could not imagine could be useful. We must expect that when we live in God’s world and remove ourselves. The past that haunted us will be used to let us forgive, grow, and become closer to the world we never thought existed.
God, may I walk without doubt, speak when I’m afraid, and hold myself to the ideal person you would have me be. Thank you for another chance at life and the comfort you bring to me when I’m in need.
