Revelations 12:11 And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.

We’ve all gone through some difficult situations. Some of us have overcome abuse, addictions, and endured tragic events. Regardless of what we’ve gone through, it’s beneficial to share our story with someone else.

When we share our story, it can help someone else in a few ways. They can relate. They’ll say within themselves if they overcame, I can overcome. Or, they’ll minimize. They’ll say, I am going through problems but, it’s not as bad as what they’ve gone through. Or, they’ll find an outlet in us. Since we shared our story, they may feel comfortable sharing their process with us.

It’s also beneficial to share how we overcame. We know it’s God Who delivered us but, between our negative event and our deliverance, there are several steps we should share. Those steps may be practical as well as spiritual. Those steps may include counseling, daily confessions, physical exercise, or meditating on the Word of God.

When the opportunity presents itself, don’t be ashamed to share your story. Your story may save someone’s life.
