God uses the negative things in our lives and uses them in a positive way, not only for us but for the people around us.
Why do bad things happen in people's lives. Why does God allow pain.
1) Free will.
We can't truly love someone unless we have the opportunity not to love them.
2) God uses patio get our attention.
Pain is God's megaphone - CS Lewis
3) God uses pain to teach us to depend on him.
We won't know God is all we need until God is all we've got.
God is bigger than any of the wrongs than have happened In our lives. God wants us to use our hurts in order to minister to those who are going through the same things that we have. But in doing so be humble, honest, be real, and don't lecture.
