When we share our stories it creates a sense of closeness or togetherness. For some of us we may be journeying through the darkest parts of our story now.... Maybe some suppressed memories have been surfacing and you aren't quite sure how to process them, or maybe you are in the midst of the biggest battle of your life and you just feel alone. I believe that in sharing our stories we create opportunities for others to help carry you in the moments where you may feel weak, discouraged or just too tired to care. Our battles aren't meant to be fought alone. I believe that when we choose to share our stories God will surround you with people who can help carry you in your lows and be there in your highs. There's a beautiful story of this in the bible and it's found in Exodus 17:10-13. It's a part of Moses' story (one of my favorites). The Israelites were attacked and Moses, as the leader, went to the hilltop to oversee the battle. As he looked upon the battle, he held up the staff of God. Whenever he held it up the Israelites began to win and whenever he lowered his arms they began to lose. Verse 12 says, "When Moses hands grew tired, they (Hur and Aaron) took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held up his hands- one on one side, one on the other- so that his hands remained steady till sunset." (NIV) Because of this they won the battle!!! I love this example of being surrounded by those closest to you to help you in a difficult battle. Who are the people that the Lord has placed in your life that can hold your hands when you're tired? #clickforhope #biblestudy #10daybiblestudy #scripture #shareyourstory #thepowerofyourstory #yourstorymatters #together #community #storyteller #inspire #encourage #instadaily #dailydevotional #studythebible
