God showed me the power of a testimony. The testimony I shared with my team was the first time I ever talked about the harsher details that I thought were relevant to where I am today with God. I couldn’t have been more scared to talk into my phone to a bunch of people on the other side. When I talked, I felt like I couldn’t control my tongue and my words where coming out wrong because of my nervousness. It didn’t go as I originally planned. But that night, one of my attendees messaged me saying that she is thankful that I talked about my temptations and sin because she once thought Christianity was an over glorified religion. Because of my story, it showed her that in fact, life on earth isn’t easy but it will all be worth it in the end. Short term pain for a long term gain.
