What's Your Story? Week #1 Your past has a purpose, each experience becomes a part of Your testimony
"Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks."
What's Your Story?
Simply put, your story is your life. From the moment you were born, all the way up to this very moment and all the good, bad, wonderful, dreadful, happy, sad and mundane things in between.
All your memories and life experiences make up who you are and they also make up your story.
A friend of mine likes to say that God is an amazing story teller.
Looking at John, chapter 4, we see the Samaritan woman at the well. Oh how I identify with her! My own story resembles her so much.
It's a hot, hot day at noon. She probably labored as she walked to the well to get water. I recently heard it suggested that she traveled to the well at that time of day--the hottest time--to avoid others who may ridicule her for her lifestyle.
Instead of water, she found Jesus. And in reading this chapter in the Bible, I just want to fall at His feet and weep tears of joy and forgiven-ness.
Read John 4:1-42.
Focus today on this: "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks." John 4:23
