Triumph Out of Tragedy!

Triumph out of Tragedy!
When life seems like you have a handle on it and everything seems to finally be working out the way you thought it should, what then? Our breath catches in our throat for that second as we wish that it could always stay that way! However, a living thing will always change and grow because it is alive! Life is always developing and creating itself! Think about it, what kind of life would we have if everything constantly stayed the same? I know that we would love to just have life on an even keel perhaps, where nothing bad ever happened and we could just live like the Cleavers on classic T.V., but again Life is happening right now! If you are breathing and reading this, you are alive! I personally do not want to waste one minute of my life! I want to be used to produce as much on the earth as I was purposed to!
Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
I know in previous writings I have stated that we are all put on this earth for a reason! According to His word He has “an expected end” for all of us! We are destined by a true and living God, who created us to fulfill a purposed Life that He ordained us to walk in. From my experience in life, my greatest joy is when I purposely walk in His will and try to do what I know to do by obeying His word, (Bible). When I am in His will it is always a place where I feel more satisfied. Does that mean that my life has always been a “bed of roses” without any trouble or trials? Absolutely not, but when trouble comes, I have His strength and grace to get through them! I trust that when bad things come, that although they may be meant for my harm, I have a loving God, A Heavenly Father, who will always turn it for my good! Now I realize that this statement is hard for many! Especially if you’ve faced horrible tragedy in your life! You may be asking, where was God when this horrible thing was happening to me? How can I find good out of this tragic event in my life!
I don’t pretend to know all the answers for life’s woes and sorrows, but the only thing that I can offer to those of you who have been devastated by such tragic events or hurts, is that God is in the same place He was when He faced such tragedy. He was watching His only son be tormented, mocked, beaten, scoffed at, beard plucked, bones broken, until Jesus was finally crucified and put to death for me and for you. Why? The answer is because He knew all of the joys and the sorrows of LIFE! He experienced them so that He could heal our lives and fill them with what truly satisfies!
Hebrews 4:15 (KJV) For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Jesus knows what it is to be forsaken and broken-hearted, because He experienced it all! He experienced every kind of the pain imaginable so that He could heal us of all of ours! I also offer this in light of tragic events, especially death! God did not kill or destroy the life of our love ones! There is a real enemy and his name is Satan on the earth. Unfortunately, His number one weapon is deception! He is the one who causes death and destruction in Life! He is a thief according to the Bible. His number one goal is to stop us from fulfilling our purpose in GOD.

John 10:10 (KJV) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly
So you may be asking, how can you began to live again after such tragedy in your life? My answer to you is to call out to a Heavenly Father who loves you with an unconditional love. He has His arms wide opened waiting for you to come and be healed! He is a God of new beginnings! You may not realize it, but you’ve already got a purpose, a ministry if you will! Once you are healed, you can help others that have been devastated by a tragic event in their lives. What greater purpose on earth could you have then to be used by God to bring healing to hurting people? This is how the tragedy in your life can be turned into something good! I pray that you will let God, turn your tragedy into triumph!
