So, What's Your Story?
Psa 90:9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told. 10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Have you ever had someone say to you, "Man, you should write a book!"?
Our years are like a story that is told. Paul said of his converts, "You are our epistle, written in our hearts, known and read of all men."
I think it is true that virtually every life is interesting enough to be a tremendous biographical novel if the author is just good enough!
But what if the Author was God? Hint, it is!
What would be a good title for your tale? Adventures in Faith? Up From Slavery? Rags-to-Riches? God's been faithful? Ah, so many possibilities.
Novels tend to have a plot, a story line, key players, unexpected twists and turns, a climax, an overall message.
Would your story be a page-turner, a can't-put-it-down, spell-binder that flies off the shelves?
And really, is your book mainly about you, or is it about God?
Know this friend, when you climbed out of bed today, a new chapter began to be written. Make it an exciting chapter where the gospel is shared, Joy is experienced, tragedies are avoided, victories are won and a wonderful resolution ensues.
I look forward to a good read from you!
