“The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18
“God uses broken people like you and me, to rescue broken people like you and me.” Toni Kane Quotes
Every person on earth has a unique story. Some stories have more chapters and some reveal nearly insurmountable obstacles, but somehow the ability to overcome has triumphed.
Never be afraid to share all or parts of your story as a way of encouraging someone else. Honestly, I’ve always had a real desire to sit down with homeless people and listen to their stories. I suspect there would be much heartache, sorrow, and pain involved. And for most, some good memories of days gone by. I care about the circumstances that got them there, for each one is someone’s child, spouse, father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, or friend.
Friends, there are many people who are struggling these days and in need of encouragement. Ask God to use your story of redemption or brokenness, as well as His faithfulness to encourage someone else.
One thing I do know with certainty is that He will never refuse to work in and through us when we have that desire. I suspect that our stories are more valuable than we know.
