"To reach something good it is very useful to have gone astray, and thus to have acquired experience."
--Saint Teresa of Avila


  1. This is the effect of God's power and mercy, that he can bring good even out of evil. So, if we are humble before his mighty hand, he can bring good out of our going astray.

    That humility, though, is a very necessary component.

    God bless you today.

  2. I love that there's always a first time, and that we have the opportunity to make mistakes so we can learn from them-in that, we are blessed.

  3. Who has not gone astray in some fashion? In that experience (or experiences) we gain wisdom by seeing the error of our ways. Through God's mercy we are granted a way back to that which is good in His eyes.
