Welcome to the forum!  Tell of the wonderful ways God has shown you He is near or read about the ways He has shown up in the lives of others.  Make comments and post pictures as you write and read the stories. Please type the story on the site itself.  Cutting and pasting documents onto the page does NOT work.  Create community as we celebrate the Author of Life together and open our eyes to His presence!

Let's Tell Our Stories

Edited: Jul 17, 2017

The community has gathered, and we are eager to hear what God has done for you, but let's be honest.  Telling stories can be frightening. There is the concern about how the writing comes across, who will see it, and what people will think, but the purpose of this forum is not for judgement; it's for CELEBRATION.  There are challenges all over the Bible for God's people to tell the world what God has done as a way to celebrate Him.  Psalm 105:1-2 says, "Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works!"  David challenges us to tell our stories, to celebrate what God has done.  As you tell your story, you will find encouragement from reliving one of those moments, and you will cement that moment in your heart.  Not only that, but you will encourage others who are desperate to see the evidence that indeed God is paying attention.  Share your moment with us about when you saw God's faithfulness or read the stories told by others.  Feel free to comment on other stories letting people know how you've been encouraged.  That's the whole point of a forum.  It is community time!  Together, we will be helping each other see that God truly is Emmanuel, God with us, by making our declarations of God's wonders.

    I've always had strong faith in God, but through the years as a single mom with 3 children many times as i would feel despair or worry God would again remind me he's always right beside me. God led me to volunteer and be very involved in my childrens' school and when divorce happened and i needed a job God put forward a job at their school so i could help support us and be there for them also. Through the years when child support wouldn't be there somehow God always brought miracles that carried us through. I was happy my children saw God's miracles up close. Even knowing of God's blessings and love something happened that could have changed that...7 years ago I lost my oldest child (my son) to suicide. After the initial moments of shock, disbelief and grief when i was told, I received my most impacting assurance of God's love and of him being right beside me...a calm, peacefulness washed over me as a feeling of God's arms around me. He spoke to me then and told me that my son was safe and happy with him in Heaven and would never be hurt by anyone again and have no more pain. That gift from God, as well as all the miracles he has bestowed on me helped me, and has helped me inspire others of God's constant presence in our lives.

    It was not the way I thought it would ever be, to find out the love of my life had been unfaithful for many years. I was shattered, distraught, shaken, in disbelief that it could be happening to me. l cannot describe how deeply sorrowful I felt. Living in a lie, a scam, a fairy tale blown up. No sleep, tears flowed nonstop, stomach wrenched with knots, exposed, alone....and then I then HE showed up to push me through the numbness. The Lord of the universe was as close as my heart beat, He knew my deepest pit, and yet was letting me know it would all be okay. He loves me, He will never let go, He is the Kings of Kings, Lord of Lords, and yet He is absolutely the King of my heart, the Lord of my Life. I know this more now than ever. It is the refiner's fire, to see His reflection in me. Blessed, not broken.
