Slavery or deliverance?

Yesterday I commented on the idea of being able to shape our memories.  No matter how we might describe the depth of our pain, ranging from minimal to unbearable, we can choose  to view those memories not from the perspective of what was done to us but rather what God has done for us.  Ann Spangler ( The Peace God Promises) adds: “If we ask God to help us, our gratitude for his delivering hand will sooner or later eclipse the hurt we suffered.  In the process of this deliverance we will find him reshaping our hearts, making us more like him as we learn to show mercy to the wounded, kindness to the poor, compassion to the stranger.”
