I’m just a vessel

Welcome back, friends…

There is so much going on in my life! So much I want to share with you and tell you about. I hope to find time during all this WEDDING PLANNING to blog (I got engaged on my birthday!) but until I do, I want to give you this brief post.

I mentioned in my last post, God Met Me on OKCupid, that I attend a rather large church. I mean thousands of members. Out of all those people, sometimes members are chosen to share their testimony with the congregation via video that is played during 4 services and broadcast online reaching I-don’t-even-know-how-many people. I knew that some of the staff members had heard about my story and I had been asked to share a bit of it for a promo for our Women’s conference last year. I was still surprised when they asked me if they could tape my testimony and share it with ev-er-y-body. I know the bible calls us to share our testimony with the world because it is by Jesus’ blood and our testimony that others will be saved, but I was believing the lie that my story didn’t matter. (“Way to believe in the bible as the ultimate truth there, God follower!” Ok, ok. I get it.) After they played my video, I received texts, emails, FaceBook messages and hallway stops from people who wanted to thank me for sharing. So many people could identify with or were touched by that little part of my story! I’ve been blessed by testimonies of others that I would have maybe never heard if I hadn’t shared mine. I’ve been able to share other parts of my testimony that are not part of the video with people who needed to hear it. I’m able to reach people because of my past that others simply couldn’t get the time of day from… because I’m a willing vessel to be used by Christ. I haven’t done anything extraordinary, but God is using me to do amazing things in the lives of His children. All I really have to do is say, “I’m here, God. Use me.” Try it – He will.

I went in and shared with the camera the story I told you guys last time (in the above mentioned blog) and I extended it to the part I haven’t gotten around to tell you yet… the miracle of my car wreck. Today I’ll share the video they made with you, and soon I’ll tell the full story.

Here is my testimony video.

I’ll wrap this post up by asking you to comment or email me your own story (meghan@thisismeghan.com), or anything you want to say after hearing this much of mine. I’ll also leave you with a beautiful picture of God’s blessings – my family. I can’t wait to tell you about this man that I’ll spend the rest of my life with after September 20, 2014. I’m getting married, you guys!!

Also, can you believe how big my girls are??

What’s next (and how long will it be before you find out)? Stay tuned…
