From a birth defect to an unwanted divorce and to a bomb explosion, Lisa Osteen Comes has experienced the tragedies of life — and the miracles.

Comes, sponsored by the Women of Destiny, will speak at 7 p.m. April 26 at Destiny Worship Center.

"I plan to share my story and some powerful truths that I have learned over the years," Comes told The Sun.

No stranger to the adversities of life, Comes was injured at birth and developed a condition similar to cerebral palsy. Doctors told her parents she might not walk and could face an early death — but God had other plans for this young girl. As her father and her mother prayed for her, God miraculously healed her before her first birthday.

Comes has gone through several life-changing moments, and one was her unwanted divorce as a young adult.

"I was full of shame and felt disqualified from ministry," she said. "However, in the healing process, God not only restored my life — He called me to preach. So in the worst trial of my life, God didn't change His mind about me; instead, He used it to catapult me into my destiny."

Several years later, in 1990, God once again spared Comes' life and she experienced another miracle.
