Oh how many times I have thought God could never use my life for His good. The things I have done – the people I have hurt – the mistakes I have made – oh my.

I spoke with a friend recently who was so moved at how God used her – a rough past but a recent tragedy brings one from that past to her because of her faith – a faith she is living out loud.

What a turn around!

When we surrender our life to the Lord – He changes us.

He takes what we see as a rough past, bad mistakes, or our brokenness and uses it for His good for the good of the Kingdom.

When we are so hopeless and there seems “no way out” He says, oh but just wait –


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28
