My Story: Being Used By God

Jennifer McGill: Faithfulness

Jennifer’s story clearly illustrates that God works for us when we cry out to him. Joseph also experienced this. The hard times we experience often make it difficult to see God at work. Especially when we’re right in the middle of them! Yet, the situation that brings us to our knees may be just the push we need to move toward God. And to see that he is faithful... and is working for our good.
