Beautiful Thought #1

 
Beautiful Thought #1
 
Your testimony is meant to be shared. Let God use your story to encourage others.
 
God works in mysterious ways. I love this phrase and it is so true. Often, he uses us as his instruments to help others. We all go through tough times, but if we put our hope in God, He can make even our toughest trials into a beautiful testimony to share.
 
One powerful reminder from 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT says, "So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing."
 
It might be tempting to hide our past because it brings back too much pain. For example, in Beauty Unveiled, Sarah hides away after tragedy strikes. It takes an old friend who shares her pain to bring her back into the light.
 
Challenge: You never know who your story could impact so don't hide it away. Share what God has done in your life with someone today!

Thank you for reading my first "Beautiful Thought" post. I'm so excited to share this with you. Every Monday I will share a new quote from the first two books in the Riley Family Legacy Novellas and a short inspirational thought.
 
*FYI: I'll be using the hashtag #beautywithinbooks on Twitter and Facebook if you'd like to share my posts. Thank you so much and keep shining for Him!
