In this video, Gerard explains how God works through every part of our lives; our upbringing, gifts, abilities, and the things we go through. He wants to use everything for the specific work He has called us to – our purpose. A key way to understand God’s love and how and why He permits certain things in our lives is to see things with an eternal perspective.
On October 26, 2019 I was dead!
I suffered a massive cardiac arrest. I was clinically dead for more than thirty minutes. And then, miraculously, the paramedics detected a heartbeat.
As I lay in my bed in the ICU, I wrestled with a big question that went around and around in my mind: “Why am I still alive?” The answer, I believe, was divinely inspired. God wanted me to share with you the treasures He had given me in the darkness, during a period of unbelievable catastrophic suffering. God brought me back from the dead to tell you about the mystery of His ways through suffering and His purpose for my life. This was my inspiration for Living Hope, and I pray it will inspire you in your life. May the treasures and insights in Living Hope help awaken faith, peace, and purpose in all you are journeying through.
