Thank God Tanisha Mackin doesn’t look like what she been through. I know from my own experiences dealing with mental illness that the journey wasn’t easy. She really took her test from grief to cancer and was able to overcome from that test. She allows herself through her faith to turn her test into a testimony. Through her testimony, she shows others that they too can overcome their test and turn that test into their own testimony. They can say to themselves, Thank God I don’t look like what I been through. “Be Though Therefore Be Ashamed of the Testimony of Our Lord.” 2 Timothy 1:8 “And They Overcame himby the Blood Of The Lamb and by the Word of their testimony; and they did not love their lives to the death.” Revelations 12:11
