It’s always fun to grow through the celebrations of life. But sometimes it’s the hardest journeys that God uses to grow us the most. And while we usually wouldn’t choose to walk some of those roads again, and we definitely wouldn’t wish them on anyone else, they remain some of the best walks we’ve taken beside the Lord. This week on BLT, we’re sharing the hardest journeys that brought God’s greatest work in us. We’ll share ours, and we would love to hear the testimony of yours!
