Tell Them Your Story!
Sunday morning at church, we had a testimony service. If you don’t know what that is, let me explain. Instead of the traditional preaching time, the Pastor of our church said that he wanted everyone who had a testimony (a story to tell about what great things God had done in their lives) to Share it!
Well, since the name of my website is “Tell Me That Story” and I totally understand the power of sharing testimonies, I JUMPED TO MY FEET! Yes, I was the first one to share my story! Are you surprised? Heehee
I KNOW that when we start sharing our stories that our faith increases! The best way that we can help other people is for them to hear about someone who has been through what they are going through. If you have been through the fire and have come out on the other side without even having the smell of smoke on you, like Daniel and the three Hebrew children, you NEED to share your story! Most of the time, we have a testimony that could save someone’s life. Please don’t withhold it. The world needs to hear your overcoming testimony!
Daniel 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
Do you know that when you are speaking, your body and your spirit must line up with what you say? When you speak, always guard your tongue. Never, Ever, Ever, say I am scared, or I am afraid, or I am sick… etc. (Even if you are, don’t say it out loud!) I know this may sound silly but give me a few minutes to explain. Satan has no power over you except what you tell him to use against you. When you say, I am afraid of (fill in the blank with whatever worries you), then you will worry more about that thing. Your enemy is a liar and he will tell you day and night that this thing is going to happen to you. NOTE: He has NO POWER but you do. Pay close attention to the following verses.
Here are some Scriptures to help explain – through God’s word – what I am saying.
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Bring up this Scripture and you will always get my attention! You have the power of LIFE in your mouth. Choose to speak life over yourself, your family, your health, your finances, and your relationships! Use this power for your good. Don’t neglect this very important tool!
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
This is God talking and He tells us to Choose Life! Who better to tell you to choose life and blessing than your Creator who knows what your mind, body and spirit need?! I mean, really.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
This is how we defeat our enemy – that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world. We still overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of OUR testimony!
Here’s how you write a great testimony, to share with others, whether to lift up Jesus or to sell a product or to help other people go through what you’ve already got the victory over.
- Where did you start out? Tell what the problem was. How bad was it? How long were you in that situation? How did it affect you or your family?
- What happened to alter your course? What action did you take? Did you hear about a product that was helping people lose weight? Did you start praying about a sickness? Were you involved in a crisis situation?
- Where did you end up? What was the happy ending? Did you get great results and are still moving toward a better life? Show the difference between where you began and where you are now!
SHARE YOUR STORY!
If you have a success story, a Praise report, a testimony, or a product testimonial that you would like share, let me know. We will read through every one that we get. If yours is chosen, we will contact you through email. Please be sure to give us a valid email when you send in your story! Send them to ClientCare@TellmethatStory.com.
No matter how small it may seem to you, it really could be life-saving to someone else. Don’t hesitate. Leave a comment here if it’s short and sweet so others can read it 🙂
