4 Ways To Tell The World About God’s Love

How do you tell the world about God's love when you're not a preacher and you don't have a big platform? Psalm 66 shares 4 steps to share your story and change lives for God's glory.

Rev and I love retelling stories from our past and in all honesty, it probably drives our kids crazy.

How often do you tell, “I remember when” stories?

According to Psalm 66 that’s exactly what we should be doing . . . telling stories that praise God and share the ways He has worked in our lives.

The Psalmist began with these words:

Shout joyful praises to God, all the earth!
Sing about the glory of His name!
Tell the world how glorious He is.

Psalm 66:1–2

Tell the world what He has done!

As I scroll through social media it seems that people love to debate doctrinal differences but I doubt that those conversations are God-glorifying.

So, let’s take a closer look at what the Psalmist describes as the way to tell the world how glorious God is.

1. Invite people to come and see…

Come and see what our God has done,
what awesome miracles He performs for people!

Psalm 66:5

Invite a friend to church. Share a blessing on social media. Invite someone over for coffee. Encourage conversations that talk about the goodness of God.

2. Give people examples of things that God has done…

He made a dry path through the Red Sea. (v. 6)
He keeps our feet from stumbling. (v. 9)
He brought us to a place of great abundance. (v. 12)

Tell people about God’s love for them. Talk about the way God rescues people and changes lives.

God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed His life, shedding His blood. 

Romans 3:25

This is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

1 John 5:11

3. Tell people what God has done for you…

Come and listen, all you who fear God,
    and I will tell you what He did for me.

Psalm 66:16–17

Tell your personal story about how God rescued you and changed your life.

4. Tell people how God answered your prayers…

But God did listen!
    He paid attention to my prayer.
Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer
    or withdraw His unfailing love from me.

Psalm 66:19–20

Tell them how thankful you are to trust Him with the things that burden you. Tell them how going to Him in prayer has made it possible for you to live with faith, hope, peace, and joy.

And when you’re having a difficult day . . . remember!

Remember the many ways He has shown you His love and answered your prayers. Remember the times He has forgiven, provided, cared for, guided, helped, and loved you.

Pause and shout His praises and live for His glory.

That’s why I started writing here at Counting My Blessings. I wanted to tell the stories of the ways God has worked in my life.


He protected our 1 lb 9 oz preemie grandson through months in the NICU, PICU, and beyond.
He healed Rev of near-fatal Constrictive Pericarditis and gave us years of bonus days.
He forgave my stubborn heart and showed me His unfailing love.
He healed my broken heart and showed me His ability to do the impossible.
He has given me countless reasons to worship and praise Him.

Will you join me? Let’s pause for a moment and finish the sentence, “I remember when God…”

How do you tell the world about God's love when you're not a preacher and you don't have a big platform? Psalm 66 shares 4 steps to share your story and change lives for God's glory.

Let’s pray…

A Prayer to Remember and
Tell the World About God’s Love

Father, You are worthy of all our praise and worship. You are glorious and powerful. All You do is awesome and all Your creation glorifies You. Thank you for reaching down and lifting me out of the pit of despair. I am so sorry for the times I have prayed, You’ve answered, and I have failed to remember. The times I have repented and then neglected to acknowledge Your forgiveness.

You gave Jesus and changed my life now and forever. Please help me tell the world about Your love. Please help me invite people to come and see who You are. Prompt me to tell others what You have done for Your people and for me. Give me opportunities to share the ways You have answered my prayers.

Please help me live for Your glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

How do you tell the world about God's love when you're not a preacher and you don't have a big platform? Psalm 66 shares 4 steps to share your story and change lives for God's glory.

And that’s how we tell the world…

One person at a time.

We tell them the ways He has changed our lives and how He is able to change their lives too. We tell them how His promises give us hope that lasts forever.

May God be with you and bless you as you share your “I remember when” stories.

We would love to pray for you.

  1. Wonderfully sage advice, Deb. Let us remember and acknowledge all God has done for us in the past so that we might show others His great love in action.

    1. Thank you for your encouragement, Martha! I sure do appreciate you and your visits. Hugs!

  2. Thank you Deb for this opportunity to praise God and tell of the wonderful “Remember when” stories. I have so many that it would take pages and pages to get them all in. God has been so good to me and came through for me so many times. Like the time I was in need of a job and down to my last money in savings. By chance I ran into a friend at the grocey store and she knew someone who needed an employee and she recommended me and I was hired. That was “divine intervention”! I had put off going to the grocery store all morning and finally had to go. So, you can’t tell me that God hadn’t already had that in His divine plan. There are so many others. I just can’t begin to tell you them all. I just know that God is so good and has been so good to me. He always comes through. Not always in the way I may have planned, but always in a better way.
    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to praise Him for one.
    God Bless you my friend. I hope that you have a wonderful week.

      Oh dear friend! I loved your sharing story today! It made me praise God also! He never fails to amaze me, in the most unexpected ways He always provides what we need! And you should sit down and write all those pages and pages, of all the “remember when” stories your heart holds! I am sure the grand daughter and others you are close to would love to hear them! No doubt they would be a wonderful legacy for all of us to share in! Perhaps that is something we all should do! Write them down and share them with everyone we know! I have often thought how happier the world might be if there was a news station for only happy news! I can picture you now, sitting on your screened in porch, pen in hand, and a smile on your face, deciding which “remember when” stories to write first! Oh, the joy of hearing them all! And may God continue to fill your life with more! Love you, sweet friend!

      1. My sweet dear friend Kathy! You are so right that I should sit and write these things down for my granddaughter. One of my regrets in life is that I did not take more time with my Mother and write down stories of her childhood and growing up. I know a few, but wish with all of my heart that I had taken time to just sit and listen to her and ask her questions. Family history is priceless and sharing God’s way is the best. God has been so very good to me and pulled me through much, always there, sometimes he will wait until the last minute, but that is how he strengthens me. I am waiting now to see how he is going to work out this family situation I have had to deal with. I have to take into consideration that He is not just going to work it out for my best interest, but also for theirs. I know he loves all of us. And that is how it should be.
        I am just so very thankful for your friendship and encouragement and so thankful that I found this website and am privey to all of the wonderful wisdom that Deb shares with us.
        It is so good to be able to share with you. You are a blessing too!

        1. Kathy Francescon says:

          Good morning! I too, know so few stories about either of parents growing up years and I too, wish I had asked more questions and written them down. We just don’t realize when we are young, the things that become more important and treasured when we become adults. And most especially after we don’t have our parents anymore. I do know that things change so much with each generation, but I know God doesn’t! I am sure your sweet grand daughter would love to hear your stories, even if you can’t get them all on paper, and I promise she will remember them always! And I hate that your family situation is still on going. I know things like that can become so burdensome and weigh so heavy on your heart. But God hears your prayers and in His perfect time and in His perfect way, He will answer. “These mountains we carry, God just meant for us to climb!” I will be praying for peace and harmony for you and your family. I pray you have a blessed day of joy in remembering your stories and even if you just make a few notes a day, pretty soon you will have a book! I am so thankful that God blessed both of us to find Deb and then blessed us to connect with each other! It is such a blessing, especially in this day and time, to be connected to those whom we can share our love and belief in God with! We may never get to meet in person this side of Heaven, but then we will have forever to be together sharing and hearing all of God’s stories! What a day of rejoicing that will be! Until then I am sending sweet prayers up for my sweet friend!
          Have a most blessed and happy heart day!

    Oh Deb, I have always loved hearing God’s wonderful and faithful love stories from others! It is so amazing to hear how He has worked, answered prayers, and even sent miracles to some I know! He has done the same for me! Too many times to even count! And we don’t share our “remember when” stories enough! The world needs to hear them! We don’t have to travel to another continent to be a missionary! We can share within our own families, friends, and communities! I have been so lax on that invitation, that true “fellowship visit” no one seems to have time for anymore! I hardly ever have a sit down visit with even my closest friends who have been my neighbors for years! Shame on me! Your post has inspired me to get out and share! Thank you for this encouraging and most needed post! It has been fuel for my heart today! I think everyone would benefit in more of the “wonderful, working power of God” stories! I need to get on with the sharing for sure! And thank you for sharing so many of your stories with us! You are such a blessing!

    1. I loved that too, Kathy! It’s faith encouraging to learn how God has worked in other lives. One of my favorite evenings with friends began with a simple question . . . “What is your story of faith? What brought you close to Jesus?” We shared, laughed, and cried together and became closer friends. I love when the Lord works in our lives like that. Blessings and hugs, dear friend!
