How My Mistakes Saved My Life

Jodie Stevens
Like many people I made some poor choices in the past. Since I didn’t know Gods word, the only internal compass I had was based on whatever I or someone else thought was right.

The inner turmoil that resulted from the inconsistencies in my behavior led to fear, anxiety, and addiction.

In a nutshell; I was double-minded. One definition reads:

“A double-minded person is restless and confused in his thoughts, his actions, and his behavior. Such a person is always in conflict with himself.”

I was on the Proverbs 14:12 path: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.”

Today I’m grateful for my mistakes. They led me to a place of brokenness and humility and opened my heart for God’s light to shine and change me from the inside out.

Now God’s word is my internal compass and clarity has replaced chaos and confusion.

My road to victory was paved with mistakes, ones that led me to great discoveries about myself and others.
