What in the world does this mean for me?-Francis Chan
took the words right out of my mouth in the final chapter of his book, Crazy Love
FYI-don’t read this book if you are looking for a cozy, “feel good-er”
line-after-line I found myself holding my breath, heart pounding under conviction of the word
not Francis Chan’s
and yet, sometimes both.
so now what???
this morning I read another inspiring post over at
A Royal Daughter, The Importance of Storytelling
Amanda reminded us that we all have a story to tell..
You may have lived a fairy tale with the happily-ever-after
while your neighbor’s line-up resembles more of that of a horror movie
You have a strong desire to share your story??
get it out!!
but you “just can’t talk about it”
speechless because the memory has you paralyzed
you’re embarrassed, ashamed.
or it’s just. too. sad.
You’ve tried to write it down in a poem or a song
the final words
only to find a blank page glaring at you
So you second-guess yourself…
“no one wants to hear my story??!”
May I encourage you??
Tell it anyway.
why?10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 I believe this with all my heart
“I was made for this moment”
that every single detail of my life He foreknew..
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. -Jeremiah 29:11
