“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,” -Romans 5:1
I think it is very typical to not have many nice to things to say about our exes. Our ex boyfriends/girlfriends and even our ex friends. I am not saying that it is right, but it is pretty normalized in our society.
I know I am one of those people.
I do not believe I have really ever had anything nice to say about the people of the past. That’s why they are in the past, right?
But, I have been starting to think lately…what if there is more to these stories than just pain and anger?
No matter how badly they ended, all of these friendships/relationships were for the absolute best.
Every single one of them made me the person that I am. Every. Single. One.
I became a more well-rounded person because of the adventures I took with these people. They taught me patience. They showed me Jesus. They changed my thinking. They showed me what love is. They taught me what hate is. They showed me what forgiveness is. Then put me into situations where I had to learn to forgive for real. They taught me to be strong, because I was able to live without them. They showed me so much about life I never thought imaginable.
I am so thankful for every broken heart. For every moment of pain I have gone through. For everything.
Thank you Jesus for those who force us to change without even realizing it. God is good even when we cannot understand His plan for our lives.
