When we expose our scars through writing there are risks involved. We risk being misunderstood and misinterpreted. Revealing our healing story makes us vulnerable to critics, skeptics, and those who just don’t get it. That’s ok! There are others who need to hear our story. Someone out there needs to understand that they are not alone.
So, I write! Even though no one knows my name. Well, there is One who knows my name! Even though I don’t have a platform (working on that). I write! I heard the call to write my story for His glory! Deep down I know there are others out there like me, who have stood in the shadow of someone or something else their entire life. We were never meant to live this life in anyone else’s shadow. We were created to dwell in the shelter of the Most High and stand in the shadow of the Almighty!
If sharing my story helps one person turn to Jesus Christ. If exposing my scars leads one person on a journey of healing in the shadow of His Wings; It will be worth it all! There are many that live in the “shadow” of others who suffer with depression, anxiety, doubt & fear. It is for those who will get it that I write.
I am trusting My Abba to use my story for His glory!
