As you probably know, last week I wrote on what does it mean? Well, what you actually do when you look at crafting meaning in that sense isthat you reframe your past challenges into current lessons and character victories. Perhaps you did make that mistake in your past, but you owned up to it, or you maintained respect in all your relationships.
The point is, you are not a bad person or a failure because of what happened to you. You are a beautiful creation of the loving God that has imbued you with an endless ability to learn and grow.
You can always choose to go from surviving to living in any circumstance.
