Can God Use A Tragedy to Speak into One’s Life?

Can God use a tragedy to speak into one’s life? The answer to that question is an emphatic “Yes!”

Since the creation of this blog just over a month ago, nearly 800 people from different parts of the world have clicked on Elaine’s story! How can Elaine’s story make a difference in someone’s life? Hopefully, if someone does not know Christ as Savior, her story may encourage one to consider that relationship.

Perhaps, someone is “sweating the small stuff” as Elaine has said not to do. Her story can put all the petty life concerns into perspective.

Could there be other victims and their families that need encouragement after a similar devastation? God can use this story to show His care amidst the suffering and His eternal hope through Christ.

One person viewing Elaine’s story shared about crying while reading about my sister’s painful journey. The person wrote asking for specific prayer for personal brokenness in a difficult season of life. That prayer request and ensuing prayer would probably have never been known by me without this story touching another’s heart.

Whatever the reason for the blog clicks, from curiosity to empathy, God is present both through the joys and devastations of life. He is speaking. Do we see Him at work and can we hear His voice?

About Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering

Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering shares the true story about a sudden family tragedy. As author of the book to be published in the summer of 2014, the true account tells of my sister being rear ended by a drunk driver. She barely survives the high speed crash being left to live as a quadriplegic. Written from a brother's perspective, the manuscript shares the heartfelt story of ongoing physical and emotional pain experienced by both victim and family. Only through God's grace can a family survive such a tragedy!
