The question isn’t, “Do you have a story?” or, “What’s your story?” I believe the question that believers should be asking themselves is, “Who is writing your story?”
We all have one.
Story. I told mine a couple of years ago at a ladies fellowship meeting. I changed my name to make it more mysterious and revealed the truth at the end. The women enjoyed the truth tale and a couple of women were radically impacted. Our story has an effect on others.
You see, our story is who we are and it is important to share because others need to know they aren’t alone in their “stuff.”
Back to topic. Who’s writing your story? Every story has an author, our lives start out with God as the Author, but along the way, at 14 years of age I took the pen from Father’s fingers and began writing my own. I kept writing for the next twenty years. My story got real ugly at times. Desperate even. Oh for sure, three wonderful lives were birthed during that time – I wouldn’t rewrite them – but, and follow me here…when I relinquished pen and paper to my heavenly Father in 1984, my story took a whole new turn. The road got straighter (narrower too, but oh how I love boundaries); the vision became clearer; and the goal became anchored.
I never want to begin writing my own story again! Having the right Author changes EVERYTHING!
