Real Talk Kim Says It's Time To Shut Hell Up
Kimberly Jones-Pothier shows readers how to let go and move on in her book When Your Bad Meets His Good: Find Purpose in Your Pain
LAKE MARY, FL—In her book When Your Bad Meets His Good: Find Purpose in Your Pain (Charisma House, 2018), Kimberly Jones-Pothier exhorts readers to shut down negative self-talk and seek the peace of God. She shares about when she traveled to Nigeria to preach and was overwhelmed with doubt the minute she boarded the plane.
“How would the congregation understand my Southern accent? What if because of my ignorance of their culture I said something offensive? What made me think I was ready for this type of ministry anyway?” writes Jones-Pothier.
Also known as Real Talk Kim, Jones-Pothier realized she was being self-focused. She needed to get God-focused. So she asked God to anoint her words and preached the Gospel to thousands of people. Her message ended up bringing a big, strong Nigerian man to tears.
Jones-Pothier was amazed that God was able to use her. It didn’t mean she never doubted again after that. But she realized how being trapped in your mind can keep you from glorifying God.
“What counts is not how great I am but how great God is. He does not call me to be great anyway; He only wants me to let Him flow through me,” Jones-Pothier says.
She shows how surrendering to God is where one experiences the most growth. When Your Bad Meets His Good features her testimony of losing her business, her home, and her marriage, only to rely on God again and come out of it stronger. She writes about lying in bed as she sobbed and asked God to erase the pain in her heart. She felt she heard Him say:
“I cannot take the pain. You must give it to me.”
From then on Jones-Pothier endured a healing process that brought her to a place where she could help pull others from hell’s grip. When Your Bad Meets His Good shows readers how to let God take the bad that has happened to you and shift it for His good.
