Episode Summary:

  • If you have ever experienced an unforeseen trial and wondered how God could possibly use it for good, then this episode is the perfect show for you. I talk with my guest, Gina Kelly, about how God can use the absolute worst circumstances in our life for good and for His glory.
  • My guest today experienced a significant tragedy as a young child that threatened her life. Doctors expected her to either die, or to have significant brain injury and to never walk or talk again. You’ll want to hear her story and what she learned about God’s faithfulness.
  • Even in our most difficult circumstances, God can use them to comfort others who are going through difficult trials. During those times, God will show us how He can be trusted.
  • Children can be so cruel to other children who are different in some way, but when we can maintain our faith in God, they will come to see that and admire it. And God will bring circumstances in our lives to help us value our own differences. Furthermore, God will use our differences for His glory.
  • God truly does give beauty for ashes, and what the enemy intends for harm, God will use for good.
  • Sometimes God uses our adversity to help us learn that He can be trusted.
  • Ultimately God has to be our source of hope, and our source of peace, and our source of confidence.
  • The enemy is defeated by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. So our testimony has the power to impact the lives of others.

 

Gina shares about God’s faithfulness at the time of the accident and how God has used her testimony of the accident as a way to bring others to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ in this post: 3 Examples of God’s Faithfulness.
