204- How to Share Your Story | with guest Brenna Blain

Posted by: WCSG & Hole In My Heart | Friday, September 8th, 2023 (12:00am)

Today on the podcast, ministry leader Brenna Blain joins us to help us discern how, when, and where to share our own stories with others.

Together, we unpack: How do you know when you are ready to share?

What was Brenna’s most challenging audience to share with?

What are the benefits and challenges to opening up?

 

EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:

“The question I have not always gone to but I need to go to is, ‘Why? Why do I feel I need to share this or want to share this? Is it because I want attention?’… Or is it that I truly feel like God is asking me to share this, and then I need to work out what parts of this story am I supposed to share and in what context?” —Brenna Blain

“It’s a little bit cliché, but [one of the biggest benefits for me in sharing my story] is getting to be the voice I wish I had heard growing up. I wish so badly I had heard from someone who was same-sex attracted who clung to a biblical sexual ethic. I wish it so badly.” —Brenna Blain

“Sometimes, I just need to sit and say, ‘Do I believe that God knows what he is doing? Do I believe that he is faithful even if his faithfulness means keeping a door closed to me?’” —Brenna Blain

 

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Are you a pumpkin-spice-everything, can’t-wait-to-put-on-a-sweater person about fall? Or nah? [You guys have a lot of feelings about pumpkin spice and sweaters lolol]

Encouraging Words From Your Bible

Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.
