  1. Kimm, your post brought me to tears. This happens to me a lot of times, like you said because of the overwhelming feeling of love by our Savior. You know, that in spite of all the trials and difficulties in my life, all I can feel is His love and greatness.

    “He is writing His story for you inthe midst of your trials”

    “Stories of His faithfulness to you.

    Stories of His relentless pursuit of His beloved bride.

    Stories that will become your testimony to His goodness.

    The story He has woven for me is a gift that only He can give. A story that I can reflect on and praise Him for His kindness to me. A story that overwhelms me with His love for me. And as life moves forward He will continue to shape it into what He wants it to be for me.

    It’s His story.”

    I couldn’t have said it any better. Thanks for sharing….

    All good things,

  2. I underestimate the gift of knowing Christ and being clothed in His righteousness. Why do I want so many other things when I already have Christ?? Your words give weight to His worth. Always love reading what you have to say!

    • Brenda,
      Sometimes when I think about all the things that I don’t get (sleep, trouble free day etc.) I have to remind myself that I get God. No greater gift can we have than having the Spirit dwell in us ready to help us.
      Thank you for always commenting on my posts. I’m always encouraged by what you have to say.

  3. Kimm: I do admire you for your courage. It’s just so hard to let go and let Christ lead me.

    • Jan,
      Letting go is so very hard. It’s learning to free-fall into the hands of grace knowing and trusting that He always knows what is best for you. It’s a process of constantly coming to the feet of Jesus. We will never do it perfectly and He loves us the same in our worst moments as He does in our best.

  4. Yes, we all have a story. Each one unique, each one written by God. Having the courage to share that gift of story with others is difficult. But it does become easier once we begin. And what a blessing to others. Thanks for stepping out and sharing yours, Kimm.

    • Thank you for your words, Julie.
      I think one of the most benefitial words that we can share with each other is the testimony of God’s grace in our lives.

  5. I believe I just read a post by a courageous wise hearted women Kimm. I so remember the first time I gave my testemony at a ladies gathering. Right before I was to speak I got a call from my husband letting me know someone had broke into our house and stoled all of our christmas presents. Of course I was pretty shook up but continued on with the testemony. God knew how much I needed to share that night, to hear from my own mouth how far He had brought me, I need to speak the truth nothing can touch a child of God without it going through the His love first. So I received even the hard trial of our house getting broken into dripping in love.

    Later a much older women in the Lord told me how she was so upset the pastor wife picked me to speak that night. This women felt like I was too simple, she admitted she was walking in pride and we became friends. Several of the ladies told me God was going to use me greatly and even though I have never written a book or done anything huge, God has certainly used me. And I am never more surprised then anyone. Keep sharing my sister, every opportunity the Lord opens for you…we must pass on that love He has for us to others. Blessings

  6. Kimm,
    Thank you for the testimony. I know how hard it is to stand in front of people and talk. Even doing something you’ve practiced can be tough. I stand in front of the
    church and do sign language to music. My hands shake, sometimes I make a mistake, but in the end I can leave them breathless & happy & even grateful.

    You just never know how your testimony can touch someone in ways you’d never imagine. Just let God do the work.

    God bless you for sharing!

  7. Great word, Kimm. Obstacles in life can either become stumbling blocks or stepping stones – it’s our choice! Those promises wrapped in nail-scarred hands are the boost we need to help us up!

  8. Thank you Kimm, this is just what I needed today.
    “He is writing His story for you in the midst of your trials.”
