As I share my testimony, many people are saddened by the suffering I’ve endured. Many often apologize to me. But the other day it dawned on me, I’m actually blessed to have overcome all the trails and pain throughout my life. I’ve been to the pit of hurt and agony so I call myself blessed. God’s joy is more precious to me than someone who has lived a good, pain-free life. If I had not been to such extreme lows, I would not cherish the highs as much. My point of reference would be skewed. I would only have good and better to rate my experiences. Though, I wish the pain I suffered on no one. I cherish my vast array of reference from torture to triumph.
