27-year-old burn victim Courtney Waldon opens up to Simple Grace about the accident that left her with burns over 40% of her body and struggling to care for her young daughter alone—and how God's grace transformed her pain into divine purpose. Here, Courtney shares about the aftermath of the incident, and how God transformed her questions into beautiful answers:
"When my husband left, I had just gotten my daughter back and I felt like I couldn't take care of her," Courtney recalls. "I couldn't drive her anywhere, or cook for her or myself. At that time, I couldn't even open my daughter's string cheese or a bag of chips. I was devastated and kept asking God why He would do this to me."
A week later, Courtney got her answer. "God started showing me that things would be okay. When I'd achieve something small, like making my daughter toast, I felt so blessed. I started thanking Him for every little step and they added up to show me how big He really is."
