…how would you finish that sentence? Building on Sophie’s previous post, if you were to say, “I was devastated, but then God….’ What would you say? What’s your ‘God is/was everything’ to you story?
Has he just sliced through your life and met you recently? rescued you? made you stare at something in awe? Made you smile? Made you cry?
The cool things about our stories is that they are uniquely ours…but if we share them, you never know who can relate to it or be comforted by it. 2 Corinthians 1: 3-5 say:
‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort. He comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For as the sufferings of Christ overflow to us, so our comfort overflows through Christ.’
Story telling is the theme of LifeWay’s National Women’s Leadership Forum next month. Women sharing HIStory…or stories of how God has met them and been their ‘everything’ in the hard places is a simple yet profound way to reach women who are hurting.
What’s your HIStory? I was devastated, and then God……?
p.s. we promise we’ll be more fun next week. ;0)
