So my last post was very personal and VERY hard to post. If you didn’t get the chance to read it, check it out before continuing with this post.
This bible verse is what encouraged me to share my story. “You (Satan) intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.” Genesis 50:20. What Satan thought would tear me down, God is revealing how I can use my experience to benefit others. The saying “Everything happens for a reason” rings true.
