‘He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted' Isaiah 61:1 NLT
UCB Word For Today reader and UCB Radio listener Amelia has experienced ‘comfort’ from God during the hardest of times, and then gone on to help others in her community in a truly incredible way:
“After giving birth to my second child, I suffered with post-natal depression. I ended up comfort eating and my health suffered. It was my darkest time; I felt worthless and no good at being a mum. I thought my family would be better off without me. But by God’s amazing grace, He STILL had a purpose for me…At times when I feel lonely and without purpose I always have the UCB Word For Today to comfort me. I know that every day God’s words will guide and give me the strength I need to fulfil His plans for my life.”

Watch the below videos to hear how God uses people’s stories for his purpose:
‘The Lord had said “Paul, it’s my plan, I just want you to be obedient” and it’s wonderful and it’s been transformational in my life…and I’m just going to keep listening.’
‘He’s restoring everything that was taken from me and everything that was broken. God’s brought it all back together, and given me more now than I ever had before.’
‘I didn’t want the pain, I didn’t want the hurt, I didn’t want the rejection anymore, I didn’t want the anger…towards myself… I realised that really the only person I could rely on was God.’
‘Mike was a single dad after his marriage had left him quite broken but he “always knew that God had a plan’.
