And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 NIV)
PURPOSED FOR PAIN
Amongst the things to which Lakina Fulks can greatly attest is that an array of pain and discomfort typically emerge amid a divorce.
Nevertheless, amongst the notable factors to which she can also substantiate is that if you stay in faith in the wake of a marital dissolution, God can ultimately provide you with a silver-lining, of sorts, as His strategic way of bringing about a sense of spiritual relief.
“It was one day in prayer as I was crying so hard going through a bad divorce that God spoke to me a said write the book now, and in that moment, He gave me the title of the book,” Fulks told Making Headline News this week.

The book to which Fulks is alluding is her newly-assembled written document entitled, “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth,” a 120-page project that officially made its presence on the market on February 3, 2019.
“When He said, ‘Why,’ I was like, ‘why?’” said Fulks, explaining her vision for composing her recently-released book. “He said in every moment of my life, I always asked why and He will reveal why, and now I know and understand why and I am so grateful.”
A Detroit-area accomplished writer, Fulks said her divine purpose for having produced “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” arose as God’s strategic way to connect her with the purpose for which she was created.
According to detailed synopsis of “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” at https://www.amazon.com/WHY-young-girls-search-truth/dp/057821055X, Fulks writes that empowerment essentially is within what she describes as a “young girl’s call for help.”
Moreover, she emphasized, “I believe that God wanted me to write this as a part of my purpose in life. Yes it was hard having to go through it, but I believe that God turns our mess in to messages. And writing this book is just the beginning of what God wants me to do with my story.”
Having commenced to writing her first book sometime in 2015, Fulks needed somewhere in the neighborhood of four years to culminate a project she said has given way to an array of favorable feedback, coupled with a few scheduled speaking engagements in the coming months.
Never mind if some will, in fact, find it overwhelmingly difficult to come to grips with the occasionally unfavorable situations and circumstances that often arise in this thing called life.
“Even though you don’t understand the reason for your trials and tribulations, there is another side to your pain if you,” said Fulks, when asked what is divine message she’s sending to her audience through her new book. “Your story is meant to help someone coming behind you with a familiar pain. And you have to show them that they too can come out and be healed.
“Most people acknowledge how candid and raw the content is,” Fulks continued. “But the truth is, it’s my story told and some parts (are told) verbatim. And it’s not always easy to read. But once they settle in for the story, most readers say how they are able to find parts of themselves expressed through various characters, and it is freeing knowing that they aren’t alone in some of the things they suffered.”
A book that has generated an immeasurable amount of success since its release, Fulks said other projects are surely on the horizon in the foreseeable future.
“There are definitely other books that I believe that God will birth out of me, but there is still a growth and healing taking place in me since the release of this book,” Fulks said. “I have started creating a journal to go along with the book that will be available this summer. The idea came when my book was asked to be in a book club and they would like a journal, so now I am doing one.”
Much to her delight, coupled with the divine calling on her life, amongst the things of which Fulks is especially grateful is that she birthed her book out of an act of obedience to God.
The same God Who can ultimately provide you with a silver-lining, of sorts, as His strategic way of bringing about a sense of spiritual relief.
“All of us are born with a cross that we must bear just like Christ,” Fulks said. “And I suffered a lot as a child and my early adult years. But the awesome thing about God is that all things work together for our good. And this book is a part of the big picture of what I was purposed for. Had I believed that pain was the only part of my life experience, this book would have never come to past. But God….”
She’s got that right.
