PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG

God writes His stories in my life everyday and this blog was created to share those. His stories are to be told to a lost and lonely world as a means of hope and healing. I heard a sermon yesterday that inspired me to start this blog (more on that later) and the pastor encouraged us all to tell our stories and not just our old stories, but our current, relevant stories of what God is doing in our lives. He also said the telling of our stories brings "Kingdom Order into chaos" - I love that picture!

The purpose of this blog:

STORYTELLING
When God breaks into chaos and brings Kingdom Order

It is also a means of fulfilling the Great Commission: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” In our stories we ARE sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.

What is your story?

Mission Blog Tour hosted by Angela at Becoming Me, head over there to read hers and many others or join in.

That's His story and I'm sticking to it!

mari, great minds must think alike... i have lately been impressed by the need to share His story... so i created a companion blog to my own as a place for people to share their stories! feel free to check that one out as well and if you want, you can leave your story as a comment (tho you have your own page so you may not need to!) (it's the tellyourstorymosaic blog if you click on my profile)

Loved this. I am glad you have decided to tell your story. I blog to tell my story too, of Papa God's relentless pursuit of my heart.

I too am a home school mom. I am about to start my 17th year.

It's nice to meet you.
