Share Your Story

We all have a story to share that can potentially help someone else.

Life is messy but it’s also filled with beauty, isn’t it? Each one of us have gone through various trials and if we allow the Lord to lead us through them, then most likely we can come out with a story that when told will glorify our Father in Heaven.

My entire story can be condensed to three words: God Is Faithful! I have been through some pretty significant valleys of infertility and losing my brother, but God has proved Himself faithful through every valley as well as through every mountaintop.

One of the things that I try to do on a consistent basis is to share my story with someone who may struggling in an area that I’ve gone through. Just the other night my husband and I had dinner with a couple who were undergoing fertility treatments and we were able to share with them our journey, covering the good, the bad, and the ugly. We ended the evening in a powerful time of prayer which bonded us together with this precious couple and it allowed my husband and I to remember God’s faithfulness.

Revelation 12:11 says that the enemy will be defeated by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. How powerful! Christ did the ultimate work to triumph over the accuser, but you and I also have an important part to play in his defeat.

So be brave, my friend, and share your story.  Your God will be glorified and you never know who it may help along the way.

Pointing Others to Jesus

Billy Graham said, “When Christ hung, and bled, and died on the cross, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’”

Last week the news of Billy Graham’s passing spread like wildfire across social media. He had lived to be 99 years old and the impact that this one man had on this world for the sake of the gospel is too great to quantify.

Numerous stories surfaced on how Billy Graham’s preaching had changed their life and led them to a relationship with Jesus Christ. One of the stories that sticks in my memory is how Louie Zamperini, the man who inspired the book Unbroken, was held as a prisoner of war in a Japanese camp. Years after his release he heard Billy Graham preach and he gave his life to Christ on the spot. That bold decision gave him the courage to face his oppressors and offer them a supernatural forgiveness.

How many other stories are out there because of Billy Graham’s persistence to preach the gospel? Don’t you know that it was a beautiful homecoming last Wednesday when Billy Graham finally heard these words, “Well done my good and faithful servant.”

This is such a good lesson for us to learn in our everyday lives. We may never be a world-renowned preacher, but we can do what we can, where we can to point others to Christ, reminding the world that God loves them.
