There are some past hurts and offenses, that are hindering your current, plus future growth. What you endured was egregious and many would have failed. The dark place and the dark season wanted to kill you, but it could not.
You endured it, to tell it. It was a private war, but needs to be a public victory. Let the world know what you have overcome and how you survived the unthinkable. The opinions of men be damned, to the darkness from which that came.
There is a light in your story and a hope in your testimony. Shine the light inside you, onto the world. Tell them what I have done with you, for you and through you. Let your light shine. Your story is another’s glory and your hardship another’s hope.
Keep your light lit, so that all men can see it. Be MY lamp stand planted on the hill. What was meant for shame is now the show. In your humility, vulnerability and transparency, others will have their clarity. The light in you is for them.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
