Bringing Good Out of a Bad Situation, Part 1
"...the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us." - Romans 8:18
In your mind, picture a fifty-two-year-old executive, writer, artist, and speaker who has a national radio broadcast. What would you think if I told you that same person has been a quadriplegic since she was seventeen? Some of you know her name--Joni Erikson Tada. Her life has been an inspiration to many because she believes God can bring good out of the worst situation. She believes that suffering has purpose through faith in God, for God can use suffering to mold our character to make us a better person.
Are you going through a difficult time? Does your hardship and suffering seem meaningless?
Remember, God can take the worst life brings and turn it into something good if you'll put your trust in Him. He's in the business of turning chaos into a masterpiece when we turn our life over to Him.
Are you willing to believe God can bring good out of even your situation? I assure you He can.
