You are stronger than you realize. The reason why your future will bear much fruit is because you’ve already conquered things that would’ve taken other people out. Life’s hardships and trials haven’t been able to break you. In recognition of that power I want you to join me in this prayer:
“God, I thank you for making me a survivor. I could have been broken, but I’m standing victorious. May I now live in a way that will make my survival testimony inspire others.”
Every single story—every single word—is in the Bible for a reason.
It all points to God’s compassionate desire to rescue and restore His creation.
We mustn’t succumb to the temptation to only study the parts we like or the ones that make us feel good.
If we do that, we run the risk of completely misjudging God’s character.
Stories of pain, suffering, and injustice are woven into the biblical story.
Because pain, suffering, and injustice are part of the human experience.
Isaiah 12:2 says, “Indeed, God is my salvation; I will trust him and not be afraid, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my song. He has become my salvation.”
