Painful lessons are usually doorways to new opportunities. Think of your past as your school of experience. When you forget a lesson or refuse to learn from it, you risk repeating your mistakes. You can probably identify someone who can’t seem to stay out of trouble to save their lives. When conflict breaks out, they always manage to be nearby. No matter how you try to control the events in your life, divine intervention has the final say. Everything happens for a reason and ultimately for the greater good.
