Today is day 2 of the “3 Day Quote Challenge” that I was nominated to participate in by Gail over at Gail Loves God and Amy at Awakening Wildflower. Thank you both so much. Day 1 is behind us…so here is day 2!
The rules are as follows:
Thank the person who nominated you.
Post a quote for 3 days, and explain why it appeals to you.
Nominate bloggers each day!
Pretty simple right? Yeah, not for someone as sporadic in his writing as me, but hey, I have two days in a row.
For day 2, I have chosen another pastor’s words. Words spoken over me shortly after giving my testimony at a Men’s Conference in Alabama.
Here is the day 2 quote:
Sometimes God redeems your story by placing people in your life that need to hear your story, so that your past does not become their future.
When that pastor, unfortunately I can not remember his name, spoke that over me during that prayer meeting, I was floored. That phrase, along with the others he spoke brought me to my knees, right there at the altar.
It wasn’t long until it came to fruition as more men heard my story.
Everyone of us has a story. Everyone has a friend, who is thinking of doing something crazy, going through a struggle or has been through a lot and are questioning their faith and maybe even themselves.
Our job, as their brother or sister in Christ, is to be there for them. We can offer them guidance through scripture and some insight based on our own experiences
Share your story. Maybe…just maybe…someone will hear it and realize they are not alone. Hopefully, your past will not become their future as they grab that insight from your experience and apply it to their lives.
Today’s nominees are:
For those I nominated please understand you do not have to participate if you chose not to. It’s just something fun and challenging.
