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?
