We want YOU!
I know just how you feel…
Has anyone ever said that to you and you know darn well they don’t have a clue how you feel?
Have you ever said that to someone without thinking I really don’t know how they feel.
I’m here today to remind us to never say that to a hurting soul UNLESS we have walked the same path.
Because, honestly? We don’t have any idea how a person feels until the very same thing happens to us.
In 1979 when my (then) husband got involved with another woman and ended up leaving me and our three kids – I had no idea THEN how that story would be used over and over and over again in my lifetime. Once I got back on track with the Lord in 1992, I have been able to minister to more than a few women experiencing the same thing. And, you know what I tell them?
I KNOW EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL!
Why? Because I do. And, the very next thing I say to them is, “Run toward God – don’t run away from Him.” You see, that was my story. It got me into a lot of trouble!
Story – one of the most important things we can share.
What is your unique story? God has a plan for you to use it in ministry to others. How am I so sure about that? The Word says so…
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1.3-4
These past couple of weeks I’ve shared, and two others, shared their stories, about an almost-abortion and adoption. You can read those stories here and here. The feedback has been nothing short of inspiring and encouraging. When we are walking through something hard we always think we are alone and no one else has ever experienced such hurt and hard; however, I can almost guarantee there is someone with a story just like yours.
We don’t walk alone.
I encourage all of us to be bold and open with our stories – in order for us to comfort those who are in trouble with that same comfort God rescued us!
