Having recently come through some pretty rough times in my life I learned what it means to be lonely. I lost an uncle and both grandpas, one on Christmas Day. He was a pastor nearly all of his life and we figured he was gettin the best present of all that day, even so that didn't take away the hurt. Besides these there have been other things this year that have wrenched my very soul. So after stumbling around in the dark for long eneough I turned the light on. Anyway I write all of this just to ask what are some of the worst times God brought you through in your christian walk? What did he show you that changed you? I am a firm believer that he only breaks us to make us. I have a peace in me that will make an excellent foundation. I learned a lot too. I'm still not perfect but at least I'm His.
