Two of my IF Sisters shared this song with us last night and the words to this song really resonated with me. Here are some of the words to Big Daddy Weave’s new song, MY STORY… “If I told you my story, you would hear HOPE that wouldn’t let go and if I told you my story, you would hear LOVE that never gave up. And if I told you my story, you would hear LIFE, but it wasn’t mine. If I should speak then let it be of the grace that was greater than all my sin. When justice was served and when mercy wins of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in. Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him.”
Take a listen, this song is really good and it’s so true. We all have a story to tell, it’s the story that God is writing in each of our lives. It’s the story of His plans and purposes for our lives, how He will work all things together for good. We need to hear each other’s stories, there is a reason for everything that happens and ultimately, it’s to help others see Christ in us, to be a testimony of His love, kindness, and goodness for His children, that means you and me! I take comfort in knowing this truth.
Our IF Table has decided to spend time each month listening to the life story of one soul sister over the next year. Stories about what life was like in childhood, teen years, and every season we have experienced so far. What were the moments that defined who we are today? When did we come to know the truth that we needed a savior, that Jesus came to this earth to save us from our sins, that it’s about a relationship with the Living God and not religion, not about being good enough because we could never be good enough to get to God on our own. Is there something that happened in our life that God is using or plans to use for us to be HOPE and LIGHT to others? I am so excited to take this journey with my sisters this year! It’s gonna be good!
