Day 14: My Story


At times I feel like I wear a scarlet letter,

because I made the choice to share my STORY.

Not a pretty STORY,

because who wants to share that they were bulimic for 14 years.

Even writing that pierces my soul,

because of the times that THE TRUTH has backfired on me.

For I was then branded

as

WEAK,

the one with the problem.

Well guess what.

I did have a problem.

A GOD problem.

Because GOD wasn't in my LIFE.

Would I go back and do things differently

and keep silent

because of the FEAR of what others would think of me.

No, not at all,

because

THE TRUTH has set me FREE.

THE TRUTH that I am so WEAK,

that I need

THE STRENGTH of A SAVIOR

so that I

WILL LIVE my LIFE as GOD intended.

I think of

DAVID~

The Shepherd Boy.

The Warrior.

The Psalmist.

Oh he wore the scarlet letter,

as he was ever

so WEAK

when he committed adultery with Bathsheba,

and then committed murder when he killed her husband.

And DAVID was called a man after GOD'S own heart.

How would you describe a person who is

after GOD'S own heart?

Would it be someone who acknowledges

how WEAK they are

and that they can't do LIFE on their own,

so that the only way

is to

come before

JESUS

and

RECEIVE HIM

to

FOLLOW HIM

because

HE is THE TRUTH.

Oh to see your WEAKNESS.

Oh to embrace your WEAKNESS.

That is when you start to LIVE.

Do you have a STORY that you HIDE because you

FEAR what other's may think about you if they only knew?

GOD KNOWS your STORY

and that is why

HE wants to be in your STORY.

Let me introduce myself to you.

I am Joni Jones.

I am WEAK, yet oh so strong,

because I have a SAVIOR

who SAVED my LIFE the moment I gave up my LIFE.

Be BOLD.

Be COURAGEOUS.

ACKNOWLEDGE your WEAKNESS

to the

ONE who wants to

take your precious HEART

and

FILL IT

with HIMSELF

so that you can

LIVE RIGHT NOW

as

HIS PRECIOUS CHILD

who no longer

FEARS being WEAK

because

WEAKNESS brings you to your knees.

And that my friend is when you

become oh so

STRONG,

because

that is when

JESUS takes over your whole being

so that you can't ever imagine

LIVING LIFE WITHOUT HIM

because

HE is your LIFE.

What is your STORY?

Tell it

to THE ONE

who becomes your STORY.

REAL LIFE. REAL STORY. REAL GOD.

So let me tell you

"MY STORY"
