Tell Your Story

Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story –

Psalm 107:2a

Redeem: to free from what distresses or harms, such as
a: to free from captivity by payment of ransom 
b: to extricate from or help to overcome something detrimental 
c: to release from blame or debt: clear
d: to free from the consequences of sin

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.  For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-5

God is so gracious and compassionate, and He comforts us in our distress. He then allows us the blessing of being the comfort to someone else who is suffering. In this way, we get the gifts of both receiving and giving!

For the next several Fridays, I am going to give you, my Back Porch friends, the platform to share your stories.

I will provide prompts from God’s Word in weekly posts and ask you to tell your experiences of difficulty and delivery in the comments. Your testimony might provide the exact encouragement another reader needs to get through the troubles they have right now. I hope you will take the opportunity and tell your story!

“Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story –
those he redeemed from the hand of the foe…”

Psalm 107:2

I’ll see you all back here on Friday!
