Do you ever wonder why certain things have happened? Do you ever become angry with God for allowing pain to come into your life? I know suffering isn't easy, and I wouldn't wish what I've been through on anyone, but I also know that God has redeemed my past in order to give hope to others.
God has a plan and purpose for your life, too, and He wants to set you free and redeem your past in order to give you a powerful testimony, to give you hope for the future.
Our pain and suffering is never wasted when we allow God to redeem it, restore it, and use it, not only for His glory, but for the benefit of those who are also suffering. This week on Joyful Living, we will see that our destiny is not determined by our past, but God can use our past to fulfill our destiny.
