Inspire “To fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative“- source
One of the biggest lessons I have learned this year is that the best way you could ever inspire, encourage or motivate others is by sharing your story; the goods and the bads, the trials and errors, up and downs. Why?! Because your life journey is common to many.
Sharing a similar situation or experience brings healing, awareness and, most importantly, freedom.
Never be ashamed of your story, no matter how difficult or painful it might have been.
Yes, not everything is worth sharing. We have to use our discernment. Always consider the effect and the impact our stories may have. Negative motives can never produce good outcomes.
We need to keep in mind as Pastor G.Andrew Beresford says “Your testimony can be a key to someone else’s deliverance.”
