I made mistakes. TONS of them. I dated women I now know would
never have worked as marriage partners. I worked jobs where the environment was dysfunctional. And I stayed too long in bad situations because I didn’t want to make changes. Yet, far from preventing me from becoming the man that God wanted me to be, all of these mistakes taught me valuable lessons that have helped me become the man God wanted me to be.
