Why We Do This

Sharing God’s love one story at a time

The collecting of stories started quite simply one day while I was doing my morning quiet time. It was a day of deep peace when God shocked me into a conversation with Him! I was thinking a Scripture that for decades had pierced my heart. “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He.”…. Isa 43:10

The words became real as He gave me the assignment to collect 70 stories that are about HIM! I was sitting down, but bolted up straight. Our conversation was not audible, but was deeply heard. My first instinct was, ‘I can’t do that, I’m not a writer… I’m thinking He has the wrong person. Of course he heard that thought and a bit abruptly replied –
“Okay then, get 700.”

That was the beginning of Share God With Us in 2013. I knew this was not just ‘head talk’ when the first story He gave me was from a stranger I was sitting next to in the Phoenix airport. It is so unbelievable that only God could write it! It’s titled, ‘Angel in the ICU’. I’d suggest you start there too.

I never would have chosen to collect His stories, but it has been life altering as it is teaching me to trust HIM unconditionally.

May His stories give you HOPE too.

With Blessings of Encouragement,
