Advent Challenge, Day 1
Be Grateful for Someone who has Caused you Great Pain!
It sounds crazy, I know. To be thankful for someone who has hurt you, but pain defines each of us in a way. It helps us to choose how we will deal with that injury. We can choose to forgive and offer up the pain, or we can choose to hang on, ruminate, plot and hold anger in our hearts. Pain can be a lesson in giving everything to God. A tool to understand that God sees who you really are, and to choose to ignore how people see you (especially those who don't see the truth about you).
When you choose, not just forgiveness, but thankfulness it becomes a gift to yourself this Advent Season. God bless!
