WHAT'S YOUR STORY?
This is a question I've been asked lately with being involved in some new circles. This has been new for me because in my familiar circles, my #story is known.
Having to reveal myself in the past has never been challenging, as I'm a person that believes in #transparency. However, when your story changes or involves layers that you never thought would be. It can become difficult and #vulnerable to express because it has many #imperfections, shock zones, #judgements, #shame, you name it. Satan tries to use those things to bind you and shut your voice down. But #God shows us in His Word how He uses people with jacked up stories to fulfill His #purpose
💫 I've been feasting from Isaiah 61:7:
Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, an everlasting joy will be yours.
‼️AND THIS IS THE RESULT OF THE STORY:
💜The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. 💜He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, 💜to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness the prisoners, 💜to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, 💜to comfort all who mourn, and 💜provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of #joy instead of mourning, and a garment of #praise instead of a spirit of despair.🙌
✊🏽By God's grace I've definitely been fortunate each week to carry out this assignment.🔥 God's grace is sufficient for you. Paul said, "Take pleasure in your infirmities." When you are weak, God is made strength in you! God is using all of the pieces in your life for the greater purpose.
Your story may not reek of roses and linen....but it's a perfect combination of how brokenness and the breath of God can produce a lasting aroma of joy and peace for your life. Your story will help the very people that you never knew existed or needed to hear it.
