Stories from the Well
Everyone has battles to face in this life. Each one has the potential to make us better or bitter, depending on our
attitude and the resources we use to address them. The bigger the battle, the greater
the degree of damage it can cause – or the higher the elevation from the victory over it.
We often begin from the position
of defeat, unable to see the path to triumph. We inherently know there must be a way to overcome it, yet we seem to get bogged
down in all too familiar frustrations. We were never meant to fight any of these battles alone. The Good News is we don’t
have to. We have a tender-hearted yet powerful Advocate Who has an arsenal of resources, companions and counsel at our disposal.
He meets us where we are, challenges our perceptions of each situation, and invites us to take advantage of His storehouse.
Stories From the Well
is one woman’s journey through several of these battles: questioning her perceptions of God, navigating the aftermath
of her parents’ divorce, healing from abortion, struggling with anger issues, learning to trust, and more. Using John
Chapter 4 as an allegory, she shares how meeting “the Man at the Well” meant the difference between the shame
and defeat she was experiencing and the unqualified hope and certain victory she is overwhelmingly grateful for today.
She offers these
stories as an invitation to all who want to meet “the man who told me everything I ever did” – and made it possible for her to smile about it!
