What has God done in my life that's amazing to me? He used what the enemy intended for harm and He changed my life for the better!! I lived such a wonderful life growing up, after being adopted by 2 wonderful people. I had never experienced tragedy before. Then in one weekend, my whole life was turned upside down. I got a call in the middle of the night that my mom was rushed to the hospital and only had a 50% chance of survival. She was only 55. The next day, she turned 56, and the day after that, she went to be with the Lord. I had just turned 28.
At first, I was so angry with the Lord because He didn't answer my prayers to save her. But, I realized very quickly that to make it through, I needed Him. I went through so many changes through the years, wandering around trying to find a way to get through the grief. Through it all, the Lord was always there and He was using this situation to bring me back to Him. I hadn't been to church in many years. I started going back to church, saw my husband be saved, and now my life is truly better than I could've ever imagined.
So, what He did for me is He used a horrible situation, that I truly could have given up on life over, and He completely changed my life and my family's life through the process, brought us to Him, and He redeemed us! I know that if my Mom had not died, I would still be working, going through the motions, not in church, and we would've missed out on the life that Jesus came here to give us! I wish that my Mom were here to see it! She would be so amazed at how the Lord used such a horrible tragedy to carry out His plans for us!
