This collection of stories started years ago when I prayed a simple prayer: “God, I can’t do this alone. I need your help.”
In that moment I was surrounded by God’s love in a way that transformed me.
I started to tell my story to others. At first I was hesitant, telling only a select few. I live and work in a secular world and I was unsure how I would be received.
But as I continued to share, I became more comfortable telling others about my experience with God’s love. After all, I wasn’t telling anyone what to believe – I was simply sharing my own story.
Now I’m collecting stories of faith from others to share with others in a book. In curating these stories, I often think of John 16:33:
“I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have troubles.
But take heart! I have overcome this world.”
I’m seeking stories of love and joy, of hurt and pain, of answered and unanswered prayers. Stories may take many different forms, but the uniting factor — the underlying theme — is the influence of God’s love.
It is my hope that by sharing your story, you may help others understand their story better.
I believe that God works in mysterious ways. I may never see the impact, but I trust that these stories will resonate in the way they are intended, in ways we may not see.
