Everyone has a story to share about what God has done in their life.
Writing out your story helps you arrange your thoughts into an orderly account. This is helpful whether you are sharing your story in a blog, on video, or in a conversation or talk.
You can apply the following steps to your story of salvation or anything you’ve seen God do in you or through you. Let us celebrate with you by sharing your story here.
What is the overarching matter?
Choose a turning point or defining moment in your life; a problem or struggle; a change of mind or heart; or a significant relationship. A single storyline or idea makes telling your story more manageable.
What’s the essential setup or context for your story?
Paint a picture of your circumstances and describe what motivated your life before the change took place. You will help people understand and relate.
What happened and why?
Bring people along on your journey. Share how and why your choices, attitudes, and circumstances changed. Since your story is ultimately about God, make it clear how Jesus becomes the change-maker — turning a mess into a message, a test into a testimony, a trial into a triumph, a victim into a victor.
What did God show you about yourself or Himself, and how are you living differently today because of that?
Every good story makes sense of the world. This is your opportunity to offer a personal takeaway.
