Message Summary: When God created the universe, there were no leftovers. There are no excess stars or planets. There is not too much water in the oceans and not too much land on the earth. Everything fits perfectly. Just as God doesn’t waste anything, He doesn’t want us to waste any experience we have in life, whether it is a good one or a bad one. He wants us to use it for the good of others and for His glory. The question is, “How do you do that?” A man by the name of Paul had a Ph.D. in sorrow, suffering, trials, and tribulations. Paul was an expert on what it meant to be comforted, and he had plenty of experience in needing to be. He experienced everything from emotional suffering, to physical sickness, to spiritual sorrow. Out of it, God taught him one of the most valuable lessons we can ever learn. God wants to use your misery for ministry. So if you currently find yourself in a place full of hurt and heartache, here is what you need to do.
