I love a good story…
And I love trading stories too!
If you want to make me really happy
-fill my glass up with tea,
sit down beside me and trade a story or two with me.
The art of trading stories is a beautiful thing!
Stories fill in blanks, add color to our genealogies and connect markers for us.
I love listening to people’s stories, all kinds, but there’s one story that tugs at my heart more than any other….
The story of a rescued life…
There’s nothing like the heroic stories of lives being rescued in the midst of death defying circumstances.
I have a rescue story of my own-
It was years ago, when my life was a mess and my heart was leading me down a dead end road.
I was searching for purpose and meaning.
Every time I’d hear the voice of God speaking through the pages of His-story I wanted to know Him more,
but I didn’t know where to find Him.
So, I followed the only thing I knew –my heart….
It wasn’t until God led me into the inner city of Philadelphia to work with those who were overlooked and forgotten that I found Him.
A God who loved and wanted me….
a God who had created me with a purpose and who valued me.
I hadn’t ever experienced God like this before…
You see, for years I filled my empty spaces with things the world promised would bring me fulfillment, but none of it ever did.
Yet it was here,
in the midst of my brokenness that God rescued me and began restoring my life.
And so it is here I invite you in to trade stories and hear a little bit of mine…
