In 2014, when I was staring blanking at my unfortunate self-inflicted situations, I could not see hope. Three years later, God helped me figure it out. I thought He was punishing me, but He was in control of every single thing. His plans were intended to prosper me and not to harm me; to give me a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). He allowed those situations not to punish me but for me to witness how sovereign and almighty He is.
He wanted to lead me and guide me towards His best.
