Have You Shared Your Story?

 

Thanksgiving is coming up soon, and everyone will be making their lists of things they are thankful for.

Somewhere in my list I always include my salvation, because really, isn’t the fact that Jesus died for our sins the ultimate gift for which to be thankful?

I realized a couple months ago that I have never posted the story of how I met Jesus on my blog.  You can get the short version in the “About Me” tab, but I’ve never devoted an entire post to the most important event of my life, the moment I’m most grateful for.  Why I haven’t is beyond me.  I think it has been a thought niggling in the back of my brain for a while now, but I’ve never sat down and typed it out.

I decided that as we enter this season of Thanksgiving and then celebrating the birth of our Savior, it would be a great time to finally share my “salvation story”, if you will.

As I thought about it, I realized a lot of you might never have posted your testimonies either.  I’m not judging – sometimes things get busy and you just don’t think of it.  I know!  So I thought I’d ask if any of you want to join me in thanking our Savior for what He has done in our lives in the best way we can – by sharing our stories with others.

I’m planning on posting my testimony on the Thursday before Thanksgiving, November 17th.  It seemed like an appropriate way to lead into a holiday that is all about thanking God for our greatest gifts.

Will you think about joining me and posting your testimony on your blog that day as well?

I’m planning on doing a link-up, and there will be a button made at some point. 

I’ll post a reminder as it gets closer, but I’m giving it a full 2 1/2 weeks – I think that’s plenty of time to decide on whether to join in and to write up your testimony if you do decide to do it.  If you have written a post about your testimony in the past, you can definitely just link to that as well.

If you’ve never devoted an entire post to sharing your salvation story, I hope you join in! 

More details and a button coming soon!

This has been on my heart lately, too! I am glad you are making a point to do it on your blog. I am interested in hearing yours. I guess one thing that makes me hesitant to write mine is the question I have about how to do it. How in-depth do we get? I have so much I could share that could also be shameful, but then is sharing all that necessary? It is who I was before I came to Christ, and shows the power of a changed life. I dunno! I need a "How to write a testimony" article!! LOL

This is a great idea! I've never shared my testimony on the blog either, and actually hadn't even realized that fact until I read this post. I guess it's something that happened such a long time ago, I've just never thought to post about it. But I should, and definitely plan to join in with you! :-)
