A story, what is it, where has it been and where is it going? We all have a story, some parts we think we want to tell, but other parts we would rather leave hidden. Everyone’s story is different and yet it is the same. We live, we move, we die, we are human, and as such, we all are part of the same story.
The Bible says, we are created in the image of God. I believe this and live my life with the perspective of a child of God. And since I am His child, every single part of my story is part of God’s story. He is the director of my life and I am the character in the story. I have a free will that He has given me, but as I live my life knowing I am loved by God, my story, whether good or bad, happy or sad, is still under the sovereignty of God.
I used to want to just show what I thought was good about myself  and although that can drive me on some days, I know more than ever that my successes aren’t the part I am compelled to show. It is in my failures and my messes that my story comes alive even more. For you see, my messiness and my weakness, these parts of my story remind me of where my hope is, and that is in Jesus Christ – He is the story I want my life to be telling.
