the stewardship of God’s grace that was given to me for you -Ephesians 3:2b

God gave Paul a mission – take the Gospel to the Gentiles.  Despite being beaten, imprisoned, shipwrecked, put under house arrest, and dealing with an unknown physical ailment, Paul was faithful to deliver that message to the Gentiles.  He was a good steward of the message that God entrusted with him.

Are you being a faithful steward of the message that God has entrusted with you?

Lately, God has been reminding me of the power of the story.  My story can impact someone else’s life in a way that nothing else can.  My story personal has several big elements: losing my mom when I was 13, being a child of divorce and a blended family, pursuing good girl perfection, and living with depression.  (Today, by the way, would have been my mom’s 57 birthday.)

There are things that I’ve experienced in my life that God can use to comfort others.  Right now, God has me focusing on depression.  I’ve run kicking and screaming the other direction quite a few times on this one.  I’m not exactly Paul the faithful steward, now am I?  But, I must embrace my story.  I’m in the process of taking a bold step by sharing my story in Finding Joy in Depression, an ebook that releases on March 12.

I must be a faithful steward of the message that God has entrusted with me.  {<— Click to Tweet This}

What’s your story?  What message pointing to salvation and freedom through Christ are you meant to share?  Are you being a faithful steward of that message that God has entrusted with you?

  1. I love this Amanda, this is so much about where God has me right now- I’m feeling blessed and He is showing me so much as I open up to others and allow more of my true self to be “exposed” I originally thought if I posted anything much about my faults and failures it could be a bad testimony to others- but God is showing me that as long as I’m following where He leads – He sometimes/often uses my weaknesses more than my strengths to reach others. (that way He is the one getting the glory) I’ve long known it is all for Him- all His- but He is taking me further along this path- We are facing some scary things right now personally- and there is no better place to be than right in His hands. His peace, love, and joy carry me! (sorry for the long comment- your post just touched me) ;)

  3. Amanda, God’s been pulling me more and more…to be more transparent, not to hide my story, because it isn’t mine to hide…it’s his.  You inspire me….

  4. I’m with you and Rebecca. I think I need to be more transparent too. God hasn’t seen me through tough times for me to hide them. We need to be sharing them so God can work in the lives of others too!
