Your Story Matters

Overcome life’s hurts and reclaim your voice

You aren't alone. Unworthy. Powerless. You are important in God's eyes. You aren't defined by what has happened to you, or even your own wrong choices; these things will not destroy you. You are loved. Needed. And what you have to say is valuable.

You aren't defined by what has happened to you, or even your own wrong choices; these things will not destroy you.

Intoxicating, isn't it?

Those thin places

where truth seeps through—

those are the places where Jesus walks,

the places we find healing.

Dare you believe it? The Pollyanna euphemisms can fade quickly as you default to what you know best. After a brief interlude of hope, your mind pulls back, pulverized by self-doubt. Is what I have to say really meaningful or valued—does anyone even care?

It's hard to forget those times you were forced to keep secrets. Or those times others made you feel worthless and inferior, pumping up their ego at the price of your self-worth.

This battle for our voices is intense. We want our freedoms. To feel joy. We want to matter. But our worlds are loud, filled with friends, family, and co-workers as well as social demands and outside negative influences.

And in the midst of all that noise, we tend to lose the voices that matter most—both our own and that of the God who whispers to our hearts.
