We are all a by-product of the lives we have lived up to this point. I left a very dysfunctional home and decided to take a path 180 degrees from everything I had ever known up to the point of my salvation in college. It wasn’t until I was married that I realized that the muscle memory of my life experiences would inexplicably and without intention, show up in my every day life.
One of the beautiful opportunities of our walk with God is that all of those experiences, even the worst ones, can be redeemed. As redeemed, they are monetized into a currency that allows us to live more powerfully and have greater impact on others.
