If you could sum your story up in a few words, what would you say?
Some people have stories of epic proportions. They’ve been miraculously healed, saved from a bondage so tight that it was breaking them, and brought from the depths of despair.
In light of these stories, it’s easy to feel as if your ordinary story may be, well…ordinary.
But no story of God’s love is ordinary.
My story does not come from a place of despair. It doesn’t come from a place of longing, suffering, sickness, grief, or bondage.
However, I am a sinner. On my own, I am wrapped in the chains of sin. But God’s grace has miraculously saved me! He has broken the chains of sin and given me a new life in Him.
I am shy around new people. I am nervous when I have to speak in front of a large group. I am awkward more than I am graceful. I am anxious. I am very ordinary.
God has taken my life and made it extraordinary through His grace. He has put words in my mouth when I had none. He has carried me when my feet faltered and fumbled. He has taken my anxiety and given me peace.
If I had to sum up my story in a few words, I would say this:
Grace is my story. Redemption is my song.
So I’m curious. What’s your story? If you could sum it up in a sentence, or maybe two, what would you say?
We want to hear it. Nothing is too ordinary. God has given you a story, and your story is ready to touch lives today. So get it out there! Share it with us below, and we will celebrate with you!
