Okay you guys. I have something to say.
Please. Tell it. I know it's hard. I know you might not want to. But tell it. I know that some people might tell you not to. They say you're airing your dirty laundry. But, you don't have to tell the gritty details.
Someone out there needs your story. If you have walked it out, and known Jesus more through it, then you have LIVED on so many levels. You survived physically and spiritually and emotionally. If you called to the Lord in your distress and He answered you, then you have a story to tell. If you took refuge in Him, if He was your helper. If you trusted in Him and He was your strength and your salvation then He has worked in your life.
The psalmist said:
"I shall not die, but I shall LIVE,
AND recount the deeds of the Lord." (Psalm 118:17)
Not just live. But also RECOUNT the deeds of the Lord. Tell them. Repeat them. Give Him the Glory.
Your story is Hope. It is Hope spoken, Hope texted, Hope written.
It is Hope.
Real, tangible hope for others who might be going through something similar.
Or maybe not even something similar. But, just something. God comforts us in ALL our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in ANY affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).
So tell your story.
You won't regret it.
