His story

Watering:

Psalm 107

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.

Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—
    those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
those he gathered from the lands,
    from east and west, from north and south.

Watching:

The Lord is good. His love goes on and on and on…

through Adam’s story, past Noah’s, into Abraham and Sarah’s, David’s, Hannah’s,

reaching beyond Elizabeth’s and Mary’s, walking the road to Emmaus, and winding through the road of Damascus spreading to the ends of the earth…

The Lord is good. His love goes on and on and on…

melding your story and mine

with

history.

Our stories are important to His story.

Wondering:

Every good story has a well-developed main character. A character worth caring about. A character that defeats the odds, overcomes the obstacles, rescues the princess, imparts wisdom with the lasting hope of return.

Every good story begins with a character. Plots come and go. Settings change. But without a main character there is no story.

“Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story.”

…When Jesus found me – alone, empty, searching for meaning beyond my crushed existence – my story suddenly made sense. All those years of thinking I was the main character. All those years of trying to make sense to a plot that was never meant to be. All those years searching for “God knows what”…

but that’s the point, He did know what:

“Hey, Sweetie, how ’bout you let me be your main character? How ’bout you let your story be mine now? How ’bout you rest, and let me take it from here?”

Jesus, my hero.

Waiting:

Lord, shine bright in this story of yours – that I have the honor of calling “ours.”
