My story isn’t done yet. Yes, I’m divorced, sometimes a mess, and at times unsure on where I’m headed, BUT, I am different because the work that I do and the relationships that I have point to Christ at work in me.
I remember often wondering in those days what my purpose was really supposed to be. I had a good job, but how was I really making a difference? Did anything I was doing really matter?
I have never doubted that God wants to play an integral part in our lives and desires nearness to us. Knowing this happens and allowing this to happen in my life are a completely different story, though.
Your stories are the best way to be prepared to explain the hope that you have. Telling our stories is one of the most simple and powerful ways to share who God is and why we put our faith in Him. Whether it’s the story of how you came to follow Jesus, or of a way that God has helped you grow.
