Much of my life I have felt called to share my story. I have in a sense shared most of it at some point or another, but I have felt like I needed to write it out, for at least the better part of the last six years. My life has been a broken path, but it is a story of God’s grace. I have hesitated to write many things because I have always said “it is not my story to tell.” Maybe that is just a lie of the enemy to keep me from stepping out into what I know I have been called to do. Or possibly it is just a lie of my own making because of my own personal insecurities.
I know that my story, when shared has helped many people find hope in a hopeless situation. It serves as a light in the dark, even though at times I don’t feel like my light is very bright. It is not that I have done anything great, but that God has done a great work in me. My story, doesn’t bring me glory, it brings Him glory because with Him nothing is impossible.
