I found this list of questions in an article I read the other day. I thought that they were helpful in determining why we have the experiences we do. The author went on to say, “Many of life’s most important lessons are learned from the trials and challenges we experience.”

Is there anything I have learned or can learn from this experience?

Are there others who have experienced something like this whom I could emulate?

Can I develop increased compassion for others and their difficulties because of this experience?

Can this bring me closer to God?
