i'm just amazed and humbled that God chooses to use me.
that He chooses to use each and every one of us.
i'm continually blown away that He uses our stories again and again to bring glory to Him.
that's why He wants us to share.
to share not only all the good stuff...
but to share the tough stuff too.
because it will all be used for good.
there is a purpose in our pain and in our pleasure.
so tell your story.
it's only yours to tell...
and it's His story too!
so we're not giving up.  how could we!  even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.  these hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us.  there's far more here than meets the eye.  the things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow.  but the things we can't see now will last forever.
2 corinthians 4:16-18 (MSG)

i was just thinking of this scripture...that though we are wasting away outwardly, inwardly we are being renewed.

yes! and we should tell our stories. they are his stories, and we are the only ones that can tell them.

may he continue to be glorified through you.
