As we go thru life we have many experiences, many times God uses our experiences to help others get thru the same types of experiences. 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 talks about this when Paul shares how things he has gone thru are used by God to bring comfort to others as they go thru similar things . . . so you could say our experiences happen for a reason
i am amazed that people (white baptist males) are paid money to speak on topics such as homosexuality and transgender matters when the only experience they have in the subject matter is reading a few books on about the topic.
