According to Inc Newsletter, a study published by the Journal of Research found that our shoes say a lot about our personalities. For example, if you want to identify extroverts, you should look at their shoe's wear and tear. The study found that extroverts are more likely to wear worn-out shoes. The study also found that those wearing shoes tend to be emotionally stable. They do not mind what others think about them. Interesting, right? Have you ever thought about what your shoes say about your personality? It may have surprised you to learn that your shoes say a lot about your personality, but what if I tell you there is something more powerful that speaks volumes of who you are?
Yes, there is something more accurate and more powerful than a pair of shoes, your testimony. Your testimony not only presents us with the path you have walked in, but it gives us an insight into all your transformation and growth. A testimony can inspire hope, teach us great lessons, and show us how to deal with our struggles. That is why it is so important to share our testimony with others. Your testimony will bless the lives of those who hear it because it has the power to touch others' souls. We can see the power of a good testimony in the life of our Savior, Jesus Christ. His testimony is impeccable and has touched countless lives. His testimony is the perfect example of how powerful testimony is.
Unfortunately, not many people share their testimony because they are prideful and do not want to show vulnerability. I think this is sad because your testimony can be a blessing, and you are depriving others of that blessing. I also believe that we show God how grateful we are every time we share our testimony and how great He is. "So that all people may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.."Psalm 145:12. I have seen the power of testimony in my life, and because of it, I try to share it every time I can because I know it can be a blessing for someone experiencing the same. I also share it because I am grateful for all the things God has done for me in my life. I want to show everyone how powerful God is. I know I have shared my testimony before, but I will share it once more for those who are new to my blog:
I have overcome many things in my life. I have been a fighter since I was born. I was a very premature baby, at only 24 weeks, and weighed almost two pounds. I seemed fragile, but I was born with a strong will, and against all odds, I survived more than the two days the doctors told my mom. A few months later, I had surgery to remove a gangrened hemangioma on my back. Once again, God was there protecting me. I had a great childhood, full of love and great memories. I am happily married and have two beautiful daughters. Those three are my world; they are my reason to keep going.
In 2015, unexpectedly, I was diagnosed with my first Pulmonary Embolism, and I did not imagine that that first encounter would change my life forever. I visited the ER before that day, and they said I had Bronchitis, but I was getting worse, so I decided to return to the ER. The doctor was about to discharge me, which could have been fatal for me, but something told him something was not right, and he decided to do one last test, and because of his diligence, they found the clot on time. Thank God they did! I was 13 days in the hospital, but thanks to God's grace, I survived. Then in 2017, I was diagnosed with two Pulmonary Embolisms, another one in 2019 and another as recent as February 2022. Both while I was on blood thinners. I do not know why so many PE encounters, but I am deeply thankful to be here and that God has been with me every time. All these encounters have made me more grateful for what I have, and I learned to appreciate the little blessings each day brings. Even though I struggle with the side effects of the blood-thinner and the challenges of other conditions like fibromyalgia, I am grateful to be here because I can enjoy my two beautiful princesses and my husband. I am thankful for God's strength because it is thanks to him that I am right here sharing my testimony with you. He is the one that strengthens me every day.
As you can see, my testimony talks about God's grace and mercy in my life. It shows that He still does miracles. It is a small part of all that God has done and continues to do for me. Yes, there have been more blessings. I am grateful. If He did it with me, imagine what He can do in your life. Do not be afraid to share your testimony; it is your weapon against the enemy. Satan only wants us to be quiet and prideful, but we must share our testimony. We need to talk about what God did in the middle of our vulnerability and our weaknesses because it tells of the glorious things God does. "But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me." 2 Corinthians 12:9. Our testimonies show God's love and allow us to give Him all the glory.
Today I invite you to share your testimony. You will be amazed by how your testimony can touch and change lives. Let us talk about the amazing things God has done and continue to do in our lives!
