Dear Father God, my question is why? Why did all those horrible things happen to me? While I ponder those things, I realize that in you, Father, nothing is lost. You never waste a hurt and will make all things work for my good and your glory. Please, Lord, make a testimony out of my test. A message out of my mess and bring honor to your name by taking all my experiences bad and good and making them a learning experience for both me and others. Give me a chance to reconcile my wrongs and make recompense for my great transgression. Please make me a living epistle.
