My husband says I’m an over-sharer. It drives him absolutely crazy that I don’t mind telling people ‘personal’ information about myself. I always laugh at him when he says it because he’s the type of person who wouldn’t share anything with even me if he could get away with it. But I’ve come to learn that what I share is extremely significant in my relationships with God and other people.
Despite my flawless body and ridiculously wicked wit (you can stop laughing) I’m not perfect. My life is a book filled with tears, laughter, pain, joy, and extremely dark moments. But the thing that has allowed more chapters to be added is the saving grace of Jesus Christ. If I kept my book closed, put away on a shelf, somebody might miss something THEY need to see to know that He can get you through ANYTHING.
Don’t get me wrong; there are some things I don’t share. There are things that have happened in my life that only God knows. But what I do know is if I don’t share my testimony with as many people as I can, I’m not being fair to God. You see, I’m not who I am today because of me, I am who I am because of Him. And I’m going to tell anybody who wants to know and those who may not want to.
So the next time you ask me, ‘How are you?’ be prepared…because you’re most likely going to get more than, ‘fine’.
Until next time….
