WE ALL HAVE A STORY TO TELL. In fact, we are all in the midst of our story. Some of us are at the beginning of our stories while others are nearing their final chapter. A story is written for the purpose of being shared with others.
I decided a long time ago to allow Jesus to be the Author of my story. The reason I chose Him was because HE HAS THE ABILITY TO CREATE MAGNIFICENT WORKS OF ART OUT OF SEEMINGLY WORTHLESS MATERIAL. He can take ugly words and craft a beautiful storyline. That’s why Jesus is my Author.
Every story has the potential of being beautiful, no matter how ugly it appears right now. I know this firsthand. I identify with this truth because HE HAS CHANGED MY NARRATIVE.
JESUS DIED FOR THE WORST PART OF OUR STORY. He sacrificed Himself for our worst chapter, the one we wish was never written.
"But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: whilw we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).
Jesus died for the WORST OF YOU, not the BEST OF YOU!
grace & peace, marc
