to know Him and make Him known

For our Held and Beloved online study friends, today I am sharing a song that speaks the heart of chapter ten … that our one desire would be to โ€œ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜๐˜ช๐˜ฎ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜๐˜ช๐˜ฎ ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ฏ!โ€ โฃโฃ

The story He weaves for each of us is threaded with cords of love to draw us to Himself. He wants us to truly know Him! Our story then becomes the most powerful witness we can share with someone else. The reality we are living can meet the cry of that personโ€™s heart and lead them closer to the Savior!โฃ

Have these Held and Beloved stories impacted your heart? Helped you recognize the miraculous parts of your own story? Have they encouraged you to notice the hand of GOD moving and working in your life? Sharpened your vision to trace His handiwork and His eternal purposes that are always moving forward? Have these stories won your heart to value the beauties of the One who loves you more than any other, knowing you hold a unique and precious place in His plan? โฃ

โฃWhat story has He given you to tell?

Join the chorus of praise to our GOD. Tell of His mighty works as displayed in your life. Finding words for your experience will bring you more JOY than you can imagine! Especially when the cry of your heart meets the deep need of another. Donโ€™t keep the Love of your life a secret. Find your voice. Tell your story!โฃ โฃ

Go and tell what great things the LORD has done for you! Luke 8:39

ps: What a PERFECT verse image to โ€œstumble acrossโ€ from Our Daily Bread during this final week of our study!!!!

All I can say is YES!!!! For hearts that know grace cannot stay silent. Ask Him how and with whom you can share your story. Bear witness of the reality of GOD in your life.

It will deeply touch His heart.

It will draw others to Him.

It will bring you JOY!
