So, I had a good hair day and I figured I’d make my first video! Yeah, I’m vain like that. The great thing about doing the video like this is I didn’t have to prepare a script or recall things from memory while I spoke; I could just remain silent. I kinda felt like Charlie Champlin- only serious. However, it was still hard to be vulnerable and share all of my scars, failures and inadequacies. But, there is POWER in one’s testimony. Christ is revealed and His goodness is on display for all to see. So, the little awkwardness, okay, who am I kidding, the lotta awkwardness that I felt was so worth bringing Him glory! And by the way, didn’t someone say the camera adds 10 lbs? I think they lied to us because it’s more like 30!
When I was writing out my testimony it certainly stirred up lots of memories and feelings and I couldn’t help but wonder how I have lived through all of that garbage. But God is a redeeming God, and a loving, faithful, and forgiving God. Yes, my sins are many, perhaps that is why I am so intense and passionate about the Lord. What can I say, I’m a Jesus freak and I’m so okay with that!
Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven–for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.” Luke 7:47
No matter your past, no matter your scars, no matter your present trials and failures……HE LOVES YOU ANYWAYS! And no, we don’t deserve His grace but He has freely given it to us, so dear one, freely receive it.
He’s done great things for you so I encourage you to share about His faithfulness too! Tell others what He has done in your life and please share your Cardboard Testimony here as well. I’d love to hear how God has healed you and used you! It doesn’t have to be a video (because you might be having a bad hair day), so you can just write it out.
