Reblog: Making your abuse story into God’s glory in your life

Something to remember:

Trust that God has allowed all of your pain with a greater purpose in mind. Unflinchingly face your story—all of it, both good and bad—and realize that the very tragedy in your life has made your story compelling.

That God is gaining great glory as you wrestle your way toward him through the weeds and muck of tragic circumstance.

Trust that in the end, whatever man might have meant for evil, God means for good, for the saving of many lives (Genesis 50:20).

God is doing his good things all the time, and someday we will only regret that we did not trust him more. —From Who Writes Your Shattered Life? by Liberty for Captives
