What is your story
Okay so we look around and we see life happing all around us. Everyone we see has a life and well when we compare sometimes we start thinking that life is better than mine. My life is better than that. We judge and we consider what can make our life better. We all want the best possible life that we can have. We all want to see things happen for us that makes life better. But the question is this better than what? What are we judging our lives against? We can always find someone who has a life that appears better than ours, and the whole time they might be looking at our life thinking that we have the better life. So what is our story? What are we doing to write the story of our lives?
If we are going to write a life story that is worth telling then we have to know one very import an thing. We have to know our IDENTITY. We have to know who we are and what makes us, us. To write a story of life we have to know who we are, and why we are here and what we are to do while we are here. Identity is a thing that we all have to process, and it can be confusing, because the whole world is trying to tell us who we are and what we are supposed to be. The world tells us how to dress, and what to watch, and what to listen to. The world and the culture that drives the world well it wants to control us and direct us. All of us have been a victim to this. No one is completely free of being influenced. What we have to consider is what is influencing us and why do we allow it influence us. There is a great verse in the bible that I really dig, because it captures my life and has helped me write the best story for my life. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says this: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. That is the story of my life for the most part and I am writing the new part of my life. Do you have an old life? Do you have a new life? Does a new life sound exciting? I hope so because there is so much out there for each of us and we have to move into the new part of our life and discover our interest and our passions. When we move into the new part of our life things change and the story of our life begins to write itself. I leave you with this thought and question. When was the last time you could not sleep because you were so excited about tomorrow? The story we are to write is supposed to be that exciting!… Let’s start writing those stories…
