“God’s Been So Good To Me, I Cannot Cannot Tell It All.
He’s Opened Doors For Me, I Cannot Cannot Tell It All.
He Made A Way For Me, I Cannot Cannot Tell It All.
He Supplies My Every Need, I Cannot Cannot Tell It All”
~ Chicago Mass Choir, “I Cannot Tell It All”
As I noted in Your Stories: The Roots of your Christian Life:
The stories of your life are what define you as a unique person and child of God . . . Everyone has a story, a set of stories to be more exact, that I feel stand as the roots of their life. As Christians, the soil in which those distinct roots are planted includes, in part, our spiritual values.
What you have personally ‘been through’, endured, and achieved is revealed in your stories. Know the stories, know the man. Have you heard a story this year that still lingers in your mind?
As I approach the end of this Series, I felt I needed to explore a few things not explored in that early-Series post last year.
Be a Willing Witness, not a Silent Witness
Whether in spiritual warfare, or a legal battle, being a silent witness can have a major impact on how things ‘go down’. As I sat in Bible Study last March, the nature of survivor’s guilt was discussed. The importance of witnesses was emphasized. The Tuesday night fellowship teacher explained, ‘God always leaves one’ to serve as a witness to others. While talking about surviving a dangerous situation, it became clear -to me at least- that the role of being ‘the one’ and telling one’s story was important in many situations, ordinary and extraordinary.
Telling one’s story, be it an escape from Danger or an unexpected, timely Blessing you’ve received, is an important part of Christian life. For you to hear a story, it has to be told first, right? Abiding Christians should tell stories when suitable opportunities arise. Doing so pleases the Lord; as well, it’s displeasing to the Devil.
