I think, in life, we experience things and walk through situations to not only find a lesson at the end but also to discover that we are closer. It’s difficult to describe but you become more bonded to the people around you and more connected to yourself. God has a way of showing up even when you are too afraid to ask him to. He recognizes your need and when its about over you have a moment to review the events and see His hand. You feel closer…to the people who love you, to your Creator that made you, and to your own heart. You are aware of where you fail yourself and aware of the areas that so desperately need to be refined.
It’s a beautiful thing really, to feel exposed and helpless but so full of hope all at the same time.
