"What is to give light must endure burning" Victor Frankl
I've met many people who've survived the Holocaust. Their stories are horrific. Their torment....unimaginable. Victor Frankl spent three years in the camps. He survived by holding onto faith in a loving God. They had stripped him of everything.....but the one thing they couldn't take away.....was his belief in the goodness of God. It's what gave him the strength and courage to rise above the anger, hatred and despair.
I used to ask all the time.....why did all those horrible things happen in my life. Why didn't God stop them....or even prevent them from happening in the first place. I didn't know then...but I do now....He used them to make me strong....and to show that faith in a loving God can overcome anything. What I want to do now....is stand up....stand tall and shine hope for others so they too will know the joy and peace and freedom that I found.
I want to set the world on fire...until it's burning bright for You.........
