We’ve been hearing this for years, “Everyone has a story.” If one lives long enough, there will be a story to tell. I have a story. Hubs has a story. My sister has a story. And, I venture to say YOU have a story too.
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Corinthians 1.3-4
I’m not referring to our heritage per sé – I am referring to events and experiences in our lives, which have impacted the direction of our life. For me it was an unfaithful husband and divorce. That experience resulted in years of single motherhood. Then a second marriage. A new husband and all the dynamics of step fatherhood. And, on and on.
Now, at 60+ years old I am able to come alongside others who are suffering and walking in the same shoes I’ve worn. I can offer them comfort and hope.
This past week my daughter walked in her 2 Corinthians 1.3-4 with a lifetime friend – her experience could very well change the course of her friend’s life. Who knows? Ten years from now? Her friend may use her 2 Corinthians 1.3-4 to change another life.
It’s got the potential to change lives!
As my pastor says, “I’m all IN.”
What’s your 2 Corinthians 1.3-4? Are you walking in it?
Someone. Somewhere. Ask the Father to lead you to them. He will.
