Tell His Story

Our words and stories hold power, ever since God first spoke these four: “Let there be light.”

Stories have been a Gospel-proven means by which we can understand one another – and by which we can understand ourselves.

We need your story.

That’s where #TellHisStory comes in.

You are the chroniclers, the people who help others make sense of the world with your words.

Story is how we know that, no matter what happens, we can get back up again.

About #TellHisStory:

Each Wednesday, shortly after midnight, I will post my contribution to the #TellHisStory writing project. At that time, I will open up the linky for you to add your own story. We can connect on Twitter with the #TellHisStory hashtag. Write whatever story God lays on your heart. Post an Instagram, and include the #TellHisStory link. What story has God been writing in or through your life, or through the lives of those around you?

There’s more to #TellHisStory:

Most weeks, at 9 p.m. on Tuesday nights, I will feature stories from other authors and writers. Sometimes, we’ll be giving away books.

Evere week, I will visit as many #TellHisStory posts as I can, and I will select one to feature over in my side under the headline “Featured #TellHis Story.” This isn’t a writing contest. I’m just eager to share and celebrate your stories with the community.

Now, there’s something else you need to know. This is a safe place to tell your stories. You don’t have to be a professional writer or a grammarian to join us. Story is built into every single one of us. Your story matters, because it’s part of God’s story down through history, not because you punctuated everything correctly. Deal?

To participate, simply:

1. Write your #TellHisStory post, from your heart, straight onto your blog.

2. Link up, and invite friends to join in by posting the #TellHisStory badge on your post.

3. Copy and paste the permalink to your post.

4. Using the linky tool, enter your link.

5. Find someone (or two) in the link-up to encourage with a comment. Link their post on Twitter with the hashtag #TellHisStory.

Your words matter to God. They matter to people. And they matter to me!

~Jennifer

The Secret to Dealing with Hard Times – #tellhisstory

The Secret to Dealing with Hard Times - #tellhisstory

This story begins at the side of deathbed. It was 2014. But this isn’t a sad story about dying, as much as it’s a hopeful story about living. I was standing there – at the end of a life, at the side of a hospice bed, leaning over the dying woman. She was frail, but wide-eyed. […]

if you’re in need of a miracle – #tellhisstory

miracles

For years, I lived a life without faith. I put Jesus in the same category as comic-book action figures: strong and mighty on paper, but pure fiction and utterly useless in times of need. I remained faithless until I responded to this strong sense, thumping inside of me, that I finally needed to ...

how to take a compliment with grace – #tellhisstory

how to take a compliment with grace - #tellhisstory

I was still new in my faith, and that morning, I sat like a firework in the front pew. My heart was eager, ignitable. Our church had a guest speaker, and I hung on every word, as if I were hearing the gospel for the first time. His fiery words were like a match on […]

if you’re feeling irrelevant – #TellHisStory

if you're feeling irrelevant  - #TellHisStory

Sometimes, I think I’ll run out. Run out of something to say here. Run out of hours. Run out of life. Of energy. Of purpose. Of time. Run out of being relevant anymore. The other night, at Bible study, our leader asked the question: “What are you most afraid of?” He gave us choices. Fear […]
