“When we share our stories, what it does is, it opens up our hearts for other people to share their stories. And it gives us the sense that we are not alone on this journey.” -Janine Shepherd

Ponder the Text: Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” -John 4:39

Prompt for Thought: What’s your story? Who have you told about Christ lately? 

Prayer for the Journey: God, please don’t let us keep your love, grace, and mercy all to ourselves. Compel us to share our stories, even when they are hard to tell, especially when they are hard to tell. God, help us to listen to other people’s stories with the same love that you listen to ours. Help us to always see you in our story and see ourselves in your story. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
