Why is it that we don’t consider it a testimony until the problem has been resolved.
I am encouraged the most when I see someone standing in the fire, tears streaming from their eyes, shoulders slumping from the weight of burdens, yet, from their mouths, I hear words of hope. I think the most powerful story is one still being written. It takes an ounce of faith on the part of the main character and the reader. Both must believe in the future. Both must will for better days to come.
So don’t be afraid to live out your truth when it is not pretty to look at. Your pain is a precursor to your victory, and that is the most powerful testimony there is to tell.
