Romans 8:28 (NIV) declares, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
I'm living proof that God can use physical and emotional pain for a higher purpose. If it were not for my diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and herniated discs, I wouldn't have resigned from the beauty industry.
If it were not for leaving the job I loved, I never would have tapped into my writing passion. More importantly, if it were not for my disabling condition, I never would have written my book, Harvest of Hope: Living Victoriously Through Adversity."
Despite negative experiences, huge setbacks, and extreme opposition, God can work behind the scenes to take your pain and brokenness to transform it into something significant. No matter what trouble or trauma lies in your past, our Heavenly Father wants to make you whole again. He wants to give you beauty from ashes.
Today, have hope that Christ will use your negative experiences and turn it into something good. Never underestimate the power and grace of God!
