In that painful and isolated moment, God spoke to me. He revealed that His desire was not for me to live for myself or to accumulate wealth and things of no heavenly value but to live a life that glorifies Him—to share my testimony of faith with all who will listen (and even those who won’t). He saved me from eternal damnation, not so that I’d “stay out of hell,” but so that I’d help people know Him and inspire them to live for Christ.
This story of redemption is why I have written this book—not to join you in a pit of misery. But I hope to lift your spirits, encourage your heart, and challenge you to look deep within yourself, despite the painful trials you encounter.
My intent is not to minimize or trivialize your pain; I intend to give you hope amid your suffering. God has a plan and a purpose for your life (Jeremiah 29:11, author’s paraphrase). It may be hard to see through the tears that moisten your face at times, but I speak from experience—God wants what is best for you.
