She will admit, she didn’t understand and she would often ask the question “Why me Lord?” Through all of her heartaches, pain, and disappointments; she finally realized there was a purpose behind her pain. God is using her to help make someone else’s life better. She says, “Regardless of what has happened in your life, you are not alone. “
