I have noticed in the world of journalism some the best books are written by authors after they suffered a personal failure or experienced a season of life filled with trial and tribulation. The books written before these hard times were filled with practical knowledge but not much substance. The books they produced after their challenging season carried a depth and authenticity the earlier works did not possess. In the place of their pain, sorrow, and suffering, when they allowed God to bring healing, their restored lives created a powerful testimony of redemption and transformation.
If you are going through a rough stretch you may not write a book about your experience but you have the opportunity to create a powerful testimony if you allow God to enter your place of suffering and bring healing.
Let God have His way in your season of struggle. Learn to suffer well and your life will be used as a testimony to help others navigate through their own brokenness with the hope that life can go on even when life seems to be falling apart.
