“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV
As an adult, I questioned why God would allow me to live through so much abuse. I came to Christ as a small child, but still lived through abuse from my father, bullying from my classmates, and abuse again as a married woman. God pointed out to me that He has used that experience to make me more compassionate towards others. He has since healed my marriage and made it better & less abusive! God is good. He upholds me so that I might show His love & compassion towards others.
