“Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in Him (Jesus) because of the woman’s testimony.” John 4:39
Many heard and they believed from one woman’s encounter with Jesus in John chapter 4. God used a broken woman to proclaim His Glory to MANY and I believe He still wants to use our stories to impact the world around us TODAY.
Testimonies are powerful and God wants to use us to help proclaim His Goodness and Glory to the world- starting in our sphere of influence. Someone out there is waiting to hear YOUR testimony and believe.
We cannot always relate to the success and highs in the lives of others, but it is in the low moments, our most vulnerable moments, our human moments, where we see we are not alone.
Jesus changes things and stories are compelling. Stories can help us evaluate our own thoughts and values and sometimes seek deeper truths. We see we are not alone.
God writes us into His story and gives us purpose, passion and strength to live out our own unique story line. I believe we all have a story to share that will make an impact on those around us. I believe we are called to declare His goodness through our stories for His Glory.
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may DECLARE the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” -1 Peter 2:9
They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their TESTIMONY…” – Revelation 12:11
What is the next step?
PURPOSE: To encourage, empower and equip women to encounter Jesus Christ through the power of testimonies.
My strategic goal is to share one of your testimonies every Tuesday on the website, and all social media outlets for Jessie B. Ministries, in hopes you would share the story with your sphere of influence as well, while using the hashtag #herstoryHisGlory.
I do not have a timeframe or a limit of stories for the project, but I will say, I have many more dreams and ideas for this project that I can’t wait to share with you!
My hope and prayer is that this project will impact the lives of the women around us, and they will start to authentically encounter the real Jesus, but it all starts with you believing that your story truly matters, because it does.
Will you share your story with us?
Here are a few questions to use as a guide to help you with your story*, but this is your story, please write it however it feels authentic to you**
- When has God’s healing and protection been upon you?
- How is God working in your daily life?
- When have you gone through a trial and God helped you through?
- Give one specific time you saw God’s power at work in your life?
- Where were you when God found you (or found you again)?
- Was there a crisis when you had no answer?
