What does your mess say about you? I've often said that in the ministry of reconciliation, our testimony is one of the most powerful tools we have; indeed, the one that makes us the most authentic and credible. It is our life's experiences (especially the most difficult and challenging) that determine the kind of ministers we will become. It is often the things we suffer that equip us to be more compassionate, sensitive and loving ministers of the grace of God. The more we can identify with the various levels and complexities of the human condition, the more God can use us to encourage, edify and comfort those who are suffering. In a tapestry, the mess in our life represents the backside of life that produces a beautiful testimony that glorifies and honors God.
God wants to turn your mess into a message. Share your testimony by commenting on this post. Let your light shine!
