We all go through hardship in our lives. The things I’ve seen in my own life and in the lives of my loved ones include cancer, loss of a loved one, job loss, divorce, hospitalization, and so many others.
We must know that a better day is coming and have faith that things will work out in the end. When we are done going through our testing time, it’s really important to be able to help someone else that is going through the same thing. Suffering is usually worse when one feels alone; our friends who suffer need to know that they aren’t alone. I always say it is not what happens to us in life but is what we do after what happens. We can all inspire and give other people hope. I am so thankful and grateful for people that are wiling to share their story to give others hope on my show at KKLA.
The thrust of what I’m saying is this: I think that some people feel that sharing their pain with others is uncomfortable or perhaps unseemly. Nothing can be further from the truth, and I’d encourage everyone to try it sometime. Though it may feel strange to share your life’s difficulties, what you are in effect doing is helping someone else who may be silently suffering in the same fashion. When you share you could be helping that special someone in a profound way which defies measurement.
I had a chance to interview a lovely lady for my show “You Are Being Tested, Do Not Worry” this week. Her name is Shannan Lewis, and she is cancer survivor, speaker, mentor, and author of the book “Destiny in Disguise”. I interviewed her about her journey of surviving cancer and one big takeaway for me was that our testing times can make us better people.
Shannan Lewis’ website is www.ichoosetobloom.com. Please check out her story and her book.
Listen to my interview with Shannan this Saturday, March 13, at 4:30 PM on 99.5 KKLA.” You Are Being Tested, Do Not Worry” is aired every Saturday at 4:30 PM and the program is broadcast on KKLA.com, KKLA App, iHeart Radio, Tuneineradio.com, Christianradio.com, and Alexa Smart Speaker.
Make it a great day and week.
