Oh the experiences we have in life! Wikipedia describes experience as "Experience as a general concept comprises knowledge of or skill of something or some event gained through involvement in or exposure to that thing or event. ". Pretty good when you think about. Here are some thoughts
Applying this to the Christian life referred here and by me as "the walk", we can see how our experiences have shaped us and molded us. These experiences have not happened by accident. Let's dig deeper in that: Listen to Romans 5: 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: The word here Experience means "trials, approved and tried character". WOW!!! Experience turns into character. In other words our experiences make us who we are. We were designed to experience life. God desires for us to have different experiences so that our character will be built, thus building our hope.
