Throughout life, we get comfortable. Suddenly, you get jaw-dropping, unexpected sand grains (news). Our belief in God should be fierce enough that no matter what comes our way, it does not shake our faith. Our experiences should not change our faith in Him. When life happens, we must decide-opportunity to grow or surrender to the enemy? It's our choice to use those trials for God's glory or to waste them. You will never know how fierce you are until a simple grain of sand embedded in you is turned around by an all-powerful God transforming you into a cherished pearl.
Ingrid has captured the very essence of Transformation. Her inspirational story reveals the joy of being transported from adversity to victory; what it looks like to be delivered from tremendous physical, spiritual, and emotional attacks through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Having survived a debilitating illness myself, I applaud and admire her strength, courage, and steadfast faith. This story could have been written from the perspective of a two-time victim of cancer -for she was exactly that-, but it was not. I don't believe Ingrid ever saw herself as a victim. She epitomizes what it means to be a conqueror through Christ.
