Learning that her car had been stolen and wrecked was not enough to keep gospel artist Erica Campbell focused on her misfortune.

Instead, the Grammy Award-winning singer chose to use the incident to glorify God.

Campbell, 43, shared the unfortunate news with her more than one-hundred thousand Twitter followers Thursday.

“Sucks to come home and find out your car was stolen,” she revealed with an angry-faced emoji.

The post prompted Campbell’s fellow gospel singer, Andrea Mellini, to offer empathy and encouragement.

“NO!!!!! Well, bless ’em Lord! God has a tendency to give us double for our trouble,” Mellini, the sister of gospel singer Donnie McClurkin,tweeted. “Churchy & corny but true!”

It seems Campbell agreed when she responded by writing, “talking right sis,” before creating another post to glorify God amid the frustrating circumstance.

“I will Bless the Lord at all times and his praises shall continually be in my mouth,” Campbell wrote.
