Every experience is meant
to make us more like Jesus.
Anything otherwise would be
a waste of our time, and God's.
"And we know that for those who love God
all things work together for good,
for those who are called according to His purpose.
For those whom He foreknew
He also predestined
to be conformed to the image of His Son,
in order that He might be the firstborn
among many brothers."
Romans 8:28-19 ESV
