So the other day one of my old neighbors wrote a post onto Facebook that said,” Have you ever thought about how your life story would read?” This made me think about the years that I never shared my story with people. God doesn’t want us to keep our story to ourselves. Josh and I are very transparent people. We will openly share that we have a great marriage but we fight or share various struggles that we have in our life. We do so to show Gods goodness in all things. We try to do this to show that no one is perfect and we are FAR from perfect.
I have had the opportunity to share my story with near a thousand people now, the good, the bad, and the ugly of it all. I grew up in a house where telling the bad and ugly with people was going to cause others to use it against you. That was satan saying, hey don’t share how you got through that stuff so he can bring others down and others will let it drag them down. God will be glorified through all things if you let him. (Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
So share your story with others. People that love God, like God, and especially those who don’t even know him. You will be surprised with how God will use your story to bring people closer to him.
