Five Minute Friday: Story

Chapter One…

My story.

My story began with a thought.

A thought about me.

A thought so much bigger than just me.

A thought that formed the earth, the stars.  Everything.

A story that began with a single breath.  Breath that set my story into motion.

And here I sit.  Each breath a gift from the one who gave the very first breath.

My story is full.  Valleys and mountains.  Triumph and devastation.

Each moment crisp, in focus, with the One who walks this story with me.

He writes my journey, my story and writes in encouragement for me to follow…

Even when the story gets dark.

He has a victorious, blindingly glorious finish for my story.  His story.

I just have to keep reading, with hope, until…

    Dear Sarah
    Oh, we might not always understands the stories our Pappa weaves from the stories of the tatters of ou hearts, the fragments of our sanity and our weaknesses we shamefully want to hide, but He takes all those things and see only fractals of the end product He createsof a heart fully surerended to suffering allowing Him to create beauty of so much broken dreams to ensure a broken heart who lost her dreamed for ever to know He is a God to built only with broken dreams and strength lost. The healer who did not come to the righteous and healthy, those who fall at His feett as beggars, the lepers, the prospitute, the murderer like Paul, David,
    Much love XX

    I was just reading a book called “Secrets to a Happy Life.” It talked about having the ability to look at the circumstances of life through God’s eyes. God is working an weaving his plan. Your words nicely dove tale that same message.
    Thanks for the encouraging words.
