I learned a lesson, about every tiny thought I had before. "I would not do that", "I would not put up with that" etc.
We do get to face some situations, to walk a mile in someones shoes. This teaches us have compassion, for others.
Faith Imagined explains this journey of the soul very well.
When I traveled this journey inwardly, outwardly I became better. I walked more, the MS (Multiple Sclerosis), seems to be in remission.
God was and is always there to protect us.
I was taught outward appearances (not that I was that bad), can be deceiving. Try not to Judge!
