Testify to what I have heard and seen

I realize where I have given up my voice, my testimony. 
Where I have silenced myself, afraid to speak.
LORD, I ask for the courage to testify to what I have experienced, 
to speak of you like Job, even when the voices around me may not understand or agree.
Not because I'm going to speak the last, 
the best, 
the ultimate
But because I matter. My story. My testimony. 
Part of the larger story of your love
Because I believe that you, Jesus, want to see full-hearted, messy, broken-yet-powerful love, and I don't want to be a spectator in the game of life. 

So, let's go love loudly. I'll speak boldly

Because of love, for love, in love.
