We are all vulnerable to everything life throws out to us. From childhood hardships to death, nobody is exempt from hardship. Whatever it may be, God is there to fill our aching hearts with His everlasting love.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Here are 5 Hollywood stars that have overcame their hardships with God’s promise.
1. Jennifer Hudson
We all heard the tragic news about Jennifer Hudson’s family back in 2008. Her mother, brother, and 7-year-old nephew were shot and killed in an act of revenge after her sister Julia broke-up with the man who would be found responsible.
Hudson opens up about the tragic ordeal the murders took on her family with the Observer. Hudson’s faith in God was the fuel that got her through that dark time.
“We always said: ‘If He brings you to it, He will bring you through it.’ There would be no point in faith if it wasn’t tested. My mother always told me no matter how negative your life seems to be, you must always look for a positive. That is what I believe a woman of faith should do.”
Hudson hopes to tell her testimony through the emotional power in her songs.
“What do they say in church? Sing from your heart, because you are singing to God. You know, when I used to sing those solos in church I would go through every line and ask the director: ‘What does this mean? What are we trying to convey here?’ If you can’t feel the emotion of a song, how do you expect anyone else to? It’s like a testimony in that way.”
