Hope-Day Wednesday #10 {and a Hope-Giver Giveaway}

Hope

My story is a landscape of intricately woven miracles, carefully designed to point to an all-powerful, faithful, and living God. It is unfortunate that there are few types of tribulations that I would not be able to counsel someone on from personal experience. Yet, it is also quite fortunate, because God has planted within me a heart for hurting women. The brokenness of my past allows me to comfort others through the pain and knowledge of shared experiences. The victory that I have experienced helps me to encourage others toward faith in a God Who is more than capable at moving mountains. And while I am not my story, my story has contributed to who I am. God uses every aspect of my story to accomplish His good purpose. And He desires to do the same with Yours.

We were not saved, delivered, healed, strengthened or rescued simply for our own good. But, instead God poured grace liberally into our lives so that one day He might use as vessels from which to pour onto others.

Our lives are a product of favor and grace. Our story was crafted to be told.

How many people know your story? Our stories are powerful. Through them, God can bring healing and encouragement to someone lost in despair. There is freedom and strength in knowing that someone else has been where we are, and they have not only survived, but have come through the other side victorious!

Throughout the week, the Your Story Page is open to anyone who wishes to share their story of hope and grace with someone who may waiting to hear it. Simply enter your story into the form, with any other information that you may like to share. If you are a blogger, writer or have a website, feel free to leave your website URL for the readers to connect with you later. Then, on Hope-Day Wednesday, individual stories will be added to the Our-Stories page in order to offer hope and encouragement to someone who may need it.

In addition, and in celebration of Easter I am hosting a Hope-Giver’s Giveaway through Sunday April 5th. The winner will receive the Hope-Giver’s 3 Book Bundle. I’ve included 3 of my favorite books from Max Lucado. The first book, When He whispers Your Name is for you, and the other two, He Still Moves Stones and God Will Use this for Good are for you to keep if you need them, or to give to someone else to help offer them hope.

  1. What a wonderful idea. I think one reason there are so many bloggers is that we all have stories that want to be told.

  5. Letetia, He redeems all. I love that about our God!

    Stopping by from Spiritual Sundays today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. 🙂

  6. I smiled from the start with your words of a miracle live, intricately woven by God… through the heart for those who hurt and the reality that God takes all we have walked through and turns it for His glory and our good. ( my paraphrase) 🙂

    You have a beautiful joy that shines through your words. I am blessed to have visited today!
    Thanks for shining bright!
    Blessings,
    Dawn
