Some have big shining moments in life. They make big statements, write loud books, and step out on platforms larger than life. Then there’s the rest of us.
We climb through grueling pits gasping for oxygen. We stand in the shadows finding peace. Mountaintops are short and shorelines are rain puddles after light showers. Our testimonies go unnoticed and are often underwhelming to others. Pits or peace are all the same compared to the best sellers, celebrity faith speakers, and online trend setters.
But in all of the above feelings and thoughts, should we really compare our testimonies to anyone else’s? Do we want to walk in their shoes, find further pressure, or feel the need to glorify our stories?
The bulk of us may feel meek in our changes, but God calls us all the same.
1 John 5:11 ESV
And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
It’s as simple as that. Nothing flashy, nothing earth shattering, and nothing that needs big names to sell the moment. But in that simplicity, it’s life giving, life changing, soul saving, and the truest love that has ever existed. It doesn’t shatter the earth, but blows the rough off, leading us straight to eternity.Share the Gospel. Share Jesus. Live the life of a changed person walking in freedom from comparison.

Psalm 71:15-18 ESV
My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge. With the mighty deeds of the Lord God I will come; I will remind them of your righteousness, yours alone. O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds. So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come.
No need for a stage. No book deals. No internet followings. No insta-parties. Just share. If it sounds meek, share. When it sounds jumbled, share. When it’s simple, share. If it’s big, share.
Share the Gospel. Share Jesus. Live the life of a changed person walking in freedom from comparison.
My testimony keeps changing, and my birth is the starting point. I had no great conversation moment, but I did have a breaking point when I knew things needed new life breathed in. Here’s a taste of my testimony at this link and I encourage you to share yours as well.
