I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed. — Psalm 119:46
A few years ago, my family and I moved to a new state. I had been offered a new job and it required us to move about 2 hours away from our home. We didn’t have family in the new area and really didn’t know anyone other than our wonderful real estate agent. As I started the new job, I was asked a question in a unique way that I had not been asked before.
So many times I had been asked to say my past work experience, what caused me to look for a new job, or many other things. Instead, this time I was asked to “tell my story.” They wanted to know who I really was. They didn’t want me to try and sell myself as what I could be. Instead, they wanted me to tell them who I truly was.
We meet so many people in life that we casually interact with. We may find that we share common hobbies or interests, but they may never truly hear our story. They may never know what drives us in life to be what we are. Yet, we are given the instruction that we should try to share our story.
Scripture is filled with examples of how God wants us to tell our story. This verse in Psalm is a reminder that we should tell our story no matter who we are in front of. People around us should hear that we are Christian and that God has made a change in our lives. They need to hear our story!
God has been so good to each of us. We have been forgiven of our sins and redeemed to eternal life. He has given each of us a story to tell. Today, make it a point to tell someone your story, no matter who they are. The world is filled with people that need to hear how wonderful and amazing our God really is.
