Saturday Share with Ruth Snell: The Rest of the Story

Welcome to Saturday Share!SS colossians 2.2

The purpose of this weekly feature is to provide a space for regular people to share their real-life encounters with Jesus.  It’s about living in the middle – on the way to the finish line.  Our race isn’t finished as long as there’s still breath in our lungs.

I believe we sharpen one another and delight God’s heart when we testify of His great work in our lives.  Be encouraged to put one foot in front of the other, and spur someone on while you’re at it!

My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.  Colossians 2:2-3 NIV

I am honored to welcome my feature Saturday Share writer:

The Rest of the Story…

By Ruth Snell

Once every summer in the 1980’s my husband, John and I would do a road trip with our three children to my hometown of Canton, IL.  While we were staying with my parents we would often listen to Paul Harvey’s radio show, The Rest of the Story.  Paul told heart-warming stories with some key parts not shared until the end.

Last “Saturday Share” with Lisa Brittain, I had the joy of sharing, Applaud and Declare, a God encounter as friends and I met on Wednesday, May 2.  In the middle of interceding for overwhelming needs in our extended families, I felt led, to Psalm 107.   In the midst of reading and praying this Psalm, I felt compelled to applaud the Faithfulness of God.

So let me tell you “the rest of the story”

We’re moving everything over to my new place so click here to read The Rest of the Story…
