STORIES

Ever number has a name. Every name has a story. Every story matters to God

I was struggling to fit in somewhere, I wanted to belong to something. I remember singing the song Reckless Love in church talking about the reckless love of and God and how He’s in constant pursuit of us…it reminded me of how I was the one.

I was raised in a Christian household but about halfway through elementary school we stopped going to church. As time went on I started dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts...One Sunday we were driving around and found a car with a 902 sticker on it and followed it to church. I realized I was looking for excuses but God was looking for a yes. I was the one.

Outwardly, everything in my life would have looked perfect to somebody looking in. But on the inside I knew I wasn’t happy and something was missing. I went to 902 and at one point Pastor Ryan starts talking about the angels in heaven are rejoicing for the one person who gives their life. I remember getting down on my knees praying, “God, I don’t know if you exist. But if you do, I know that I need you in my life.

If you've met Jesus, you've got a story to share. Stories are about change, and Jesus is all about changing lives.

It's easy to get overwhelmed by the idea of sharing your story. Perhaps you've told yourself "it's not exciting enough" or "it's too complicated." The truth is sharing your story is as simple as telling people what God has done for you. That was the approach the apostle Paul used. In Acts 22 and Acts 26, Paul told his story in about 500 words — 2 to 3 minutes at normal speaking pace.

With a little preparation, your story can be a powerful way to give God the praise He deserves and to help others draw closer to Him.
