Last month we published the first PPPG Experience from one of our members. I encouraged others to do the same. You might think this invitation applies only to those who are gifted in writing. Some people are afraid to put pen to paper and share their experiences. Afraid that their story is not compelling. Perhaps it’s too ordinary or people will judge it to be unworthy… There are any number of reasons that may prevent you from sharing your story.
The fact is that every time we tell our story, our testimony, we give honor and glory to God. Your story—regardless of how “ordinary” you may think it is—is a story about God’s goodness manifested in you. If I have had a profound experience after becoming a spiritual child of Padre Pio, wouldn’t I want people to know how good God is in my life!
Recently I discovered a new burger restaurant near my house. It is the best burger I’ve tasted in a while and I’ve started telling all my friends about it. Before I knew it, I had become that restaurant’s spokesperson and my friends now want to try it out.
Do you relate to this story? Do you tell people when you discover a “good” new restaurant? If we can be so passionate about sharing restaurant discoveries with others, how about sharing the story of your new faith adventure with Jesus through PPPG?
Do not be afraid to write down and share your faith journey! Your story might move others. Your story might encourage others. Your story might help others come to know what God is like and all that He can do. So begin to write. Now is the time for you to give honor and glory to God.
