Your Story Matters

It Matters to God and it Matters to Others. So Make it a GREAT ONE.








You are living and writing your STORY. That story matters a very great deal. It matters to God, it matters to others.

It is a wonderful mindset to understand that our universe, our world (God's Kingdom) - as vast as it is, is a collection of many, many, many TINY STORIES. Every story matters. Your story, as tiny as it is - matters to those around you. And it matters to God who is co-authoring your story.

Therefore, you have the responsibility to make sure your story, your message to the world is a GOOD ONE. Since your story matters, it then matters if it is good or if it is bad. It matters because your story makes a difference for others. A good STORY makes a GOOD DIFFERENCE. A bad store, well . . .

You have the opportunity to be an inspiration, an encouragement, a motivation, an influence, a blessing, a benediction! What a privilege! What a responsibility.

If you are not CURRENTLY writing a good story - you have the responsibility TODAY to change it. You are a free person. With freedom comes great responsibility. You have the freedom to choose, to decide, to determine, to change. If you don't like how your story is developing - CHANGE IT TODAY. Yes, you can do that. There come those times when you have to draw a line in the sand. You have to establish a marker that becomes a monument to a turning point.

Even though you are responsible for your story, and even though you have the power to change it today - you are NOT ON YOUR OWN. You are NEVER alone. God is with you. Jesus loves you. With Christ you have the fullness of God alive in you, transforming you, gifting you, uplifting you, morphing you. That is why you can CHANGE, for God is At Work Within You (Philippians 2:12-13).

Your story matters so much to God, he will bring all the resources of grace, love, wisdom and power... put them at your disposal... and work with you to Write a Better Story. So happy writing. 

Not the End . . .
