When we’ve been hurt and we realize that what our offenders meant for evil, God actually meant for good, then we understand the purpose of our pain. We can see that those who do evil towards us don’t control our lives by anything that they can do to us. Instead, God controls the outcome and intends for us to go through certain things so we can become more like He wants us to be.
