Testimony Tuesday

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” (Mark 5:19, ESV)


Have you ever thought about how the things you’ve gone through were not just for you, but also for the good of others?

Many times we are so ashamed of our mistakes that we never share them, because we fear they’ll make us look ignorant, foolish, or immature; however, when we testify of our mistakes we not only learn our lessons, but help others not to take the same path that we’ve taken. Our faults and missteps actually bring help and healing to the lives of others.

Every time we share our struggles we cut them in half. They become less and less overwhelming in our lives and turn into tools of power for others. Our struggles were never meant for us to dwell in them or pass them down through the generations, but to share them so that others may be cautioned or comforted, knowing that someone has been there.

If you’ve:

been healed… help someone else get healed.
recovered from alcoholism… help someone else sober up
taken out loans naively… help someone else avoid debt
struggled in school… help someone else find study tips
gotten tickets from your lead foot… help someone else remember the speeding laws
been caught in fornication… help someone else learn to be celibate

Just because you’ve made the wrong turns doesn’t mean you can’t lead someone in the right direction. Let your struggles become strength; your mistakes become miracles; and your frustrations become fortune for others. Don’t just hold on to them, ashamed that it happened; share your testimony.

You just don’t know how testifying of what God has brought you through (even if it was a mistake) could actually save someone from a lifetime of trouble and heartache!
