In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
I am discovering more and more just how God can use YOUR story to add value to others lives. He can and will use your story to encourage, strengthen, and inspire others when you live a life fully devoted to him. My wife and I are currently on a much needed vacation. Our prayer even before we left was that God would use us to add value to other peoples lives while he added rest to ours. Man, has he given us opportunity after opportunity.
We have been blessed, so therefore we worship Him for it. And as a result, it draws people. People want to know why we are the way we are and there is the doorway. The opportunity to share the Gospel and His goodness. To share how we do not just praise Him for when things are good. But how because we stand firm and praise Him when things are not so good, He rewards His children. He gives us hope. He gives us rest.
I look forward to sharing these stories with all of you soon, but they are still being written with those people we have been given the opportunity to encourage, strengthen, and inspire with the gospel. So stay tuned in and ask God to use your story to add value to those people you come in contact with every single day!
