“Keep pouring out. Give out of your heart those experiences and circumstances where I came through for you. Even those who don’t seem to hear will recall in their time of crises and will cash in on your testimony of My faithfulness. They will cry out to Me and become as you are – one that knows the reality of who I AM and what I have done in the work of the cross for every shipwrecked life. Continue to walk in preparedness to speak. Be instant in season and out. Open your mouth even at times that it seems you are merely being brash. It isn’t men’s wisdom or knowledge that convinces. It is the witness of My Spirit. I will go with you in signs following and cause hardened hearts to be softened and lives changed because you made yourself available and chose to be obedient to My call.”

I believe we all have the ability to give apart of who we are to help someone. Sometimes we don’t always see that we have anything to give anyone, but God will use what you have to be a testimony to someone else.
He has used people in my life to help me get to where I am and He has used me to be there for other people. I’ve always felt like He’s given me my life experiences to help other people. I’ve met people who have been through hard life lessons just like me and He’s used them to speak to my heart.
I think we are called in life to take life’s lessons and let them be a sounding board for what it’s taught us. To show those hurting or struggling that we’ve all been at that place. None of us are leaving this earth with the perfect life. We’ve all had something in life that has transformed us into who we are.
God will use you, right where you are, to be that light that someone needs. Just be obedient to His calling. Be willing to step outside of the perfect little box of life and show people what God is doing or has done for you. It may be exactly what someone needs to take the next step that can propel them to a closer relationship with God. Without the reality of the hurts and pains people have caused me, my life would not be in the perfect alignment with God. I totally rely on my relationship with Him to get me through each and every day. I can’t do this life without Him, I’ve tried and it was a big ol’ mess. Trust Him to use you!!
He used people in the bible to do His works that were just like you and me. Make yourself available to someone. Show people who God is. Be a light in someone’s life. Lift someone up with encouragement who may just be at the end of their rope. Shine Gods glory on this cruel and crazy world. Give of yourself. Ask Him to place people in your path that need you. Pray for a heart that wants to serve others. Thank Him for your life experiences and ask Him to use them to be a testimony to someone else.
I believe we all serve a purpose in this life. I think we just have to use what God’s given us. You have a gift, use it for His glory! Trust me, I’m a work in progress and if I can help one person in anyway with what I’ve been through, then it was worth every pain I felt. God is my guide in this life and I can’t do anything without Him. I don’t want to do life without Him. Thank you Jesus for the life I’ve lived and the things I’ve been through, because without them I wouldn’t be where I am now. I would still be stuck in the muck and mire of unhappiness and despair. Use me to serve others. Help me be a light to anyone who needs to see You. Guide me in the direction that best glorifies who you are. Help me to be kind and always humble. Give me strength to speak my truth to help others. Use the pains and hurts of my life to lift up someone else. You gave me this life and I pray that I can use it to be a gift to someine else. Lead me, guide me and help me speak in a way that shows others what an amazing God I serve. ❤
