Elizabeth Smart Shares Her Story of Faith in Spite of Suffering
Written by T.M. Gaouette | February 21, 2015
Hey ladies, our faith is often tested as we each journey through life. And one of the most difficult times for even devoted Christians to remain faithful to our God is when something really bad happens. Many Christians have turned their back on their faith after tragedy has struck.
But then there are those Christians who hold on fast to their faith, even in the face of the most horrific circumstances.
This week’s Caught Being Godly story is about a young woman who endured and survived a horrific ordeal. Elizabeth Smart was 14 when she was kidnapped from her home. And for nine months she was abused beyond all imagination. It was certainly an experience that could have caused her to question God. But instead of feeling forsaken, she held onto the Truth that God loved her. And her faith prevailed.
Her faith not only helped her remain strong during her ordeal, but even afterward as she began the healing process. And today it continues to grow strong as she uses her experience to help in her endeavor to prevent predatory crimes.
Ladies, have you ever struggled in your faith during times of suffering?
