They say God makes a test a testimony.
But can it still be called a testimony if it’s not shared? If it’s not heard? If it’s not made clear?
What if you’re afraid. What if you’re seen as too human rather than superchristian. Too weak, unholy, too easily tempted.
Well here’s the gospel truth. I have struggled too. I have gone through trials too. I have doubted too. But I still get up.
Staying depressed? Jesus didn’t die for that.
Accepting defeat? Jesus didn’t die for…
Finding security in your insecurity? Jesus just didn’t.
The bible says that we overcome by the blood of the lamb and by the WORD.
By our words, by our testimony.
By passing those tests.
So SPEAK out. Even when it’s awkward. Even when we’re scarred and still healing and it seems forward.
For trials build character. And Character building is Christ’ forte.
So Speak. My struggles may not be your struggles but if we face struggles together then sure enough we won’t be struggling forever.
Shorter falls and stronger heights.
For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of might. His power within us. His blood that covers us. His covenant made to us. So stay high.
I rise because he rose and so will you.
You see, my scars are healing because his flesh deep stripes were real and now he’s alive.
So if you think I’m immune, I’m not. But it’s not so much the fall but how you get up that counts. It took Jesus 3 days. How long will you allow?
I am a testimony because I, by God’s grace, have overcome a test. & that shaped me into the best me yet.
& Yes, people can judge, people may boo, but sharing a problem halves the problem and so if you’re willing to be an ambassador of healing then
Happy New Year!
