We know God's most breathtaking work takes place in the rough and stony places of our lives. We also know that when we look back on the rugged landscapes, we see beauty. What at the time seemed to be stumbling blocks hindering progress in our lives, we now see as stepping stones to growth as we view the scene from God's vantage point.
