When I started writing I featured myself as a storyteller. I even had a Facebook page with that title. In truth, I’m not as fine a storyteller as I thought I was. What I’ve come to see is how and where God would have me use my writing. That’s a story for another day.
Today I want to focus on the unwritten and unspoken story that we all have. We tell our stories in our attitudes, actions and responses to our circumstances. People around us are watching us. Each life we interact with will have an impression of you. Are we compassionate, generous, patient, loving? Do we snarl, snap and growl like a mad dog?
I have the wonderful story of grace in my life. I didn’t earn or deserve God’s grace. My only part is in the simplicity of believing Him. He told me His story in the Bible. He told me that his word was alive and powerful; good for teaching me the way to live. He gave me a role model to follow. God told me to have the mind of Christ. I need to do this daily to have a story to tell. I’m not perfect, but I keep practicing.
2 Corinthians 3:3 being manifested that you are a letter of Christ…written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. (NASB)
Keep smiling. It improves your face-value. Better yet, read THE STORY and improve your life, your soul, and your story.
