From Hatred to Hope: How She Made It Through and You Can Too

Have you ever asked yourself, “What am I complaining for?

You probably have at some point in your life.

I’m a firm believer there is always someone worse off than me. With that in mind, I have changed my mindset to being grateful that what I went through didn’t kill me, break me. or make me lose my mind.

Think about it, in life we experience many tests, some are meant for us and we also learn lessons from people’s test around us. No matter what the experiences are, we hope the lessons will teach us to become stronger, increase our faith, and compel our WILL to fight and overcome.

My latest interview is just that type of story. Her faith was truly tested. She was sexually abused, bullied, victimized about the color of her skin, suffered with many health concerns, and had infertility issues. She was knocked down time after time… to the point of wanting to give up on life. And yes, she almost lost hope and gave up. Yet, she prevailed and stood firm because her faith opened the door for God’s divine intervention. Just like JOB in the bible, no matter what experiences he went through, he never lost faith.

How many of you will hold on to your faith no matter how bad things get?
