Think of all the seemingly negative events in your life. Some of us have faced things such as layoffs, a passing of a loved one, or eviction. If these negative events were handled correctly, meaning, continuing to trust, rely, and praise God during the circumstance, that negative event can be a tool for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.

It’s called a testimony for a reason. We can’t have testimony without going through a test. If we pass that test, we become a voice of hope when reaching others going through the same thing. No one wants to hear from a person who’s never lost a child when grief of losing a child is staring them right in the face. It’s difficult for us to relate to someone who hasn’t experience what we’ve experienced or are experiencing.

Facing and overcoming negative events allows us to have a testimony on how we made it through. We’ll be an encourager to those in difficult places and we’ll be a light to those facing darkness. It’s all perspective.

Use the negative events we’ve faced or are facing to advance the Kingdom of God and to be a blessing to others.

Philippians 1:12 But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, 13 so that it has become evidence to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ; 14 and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
