The start of another chapter. In case you didn't guess from the bio, I love writing. There's nothing that can quite beat it. There's nothing like sitting down at a notebook or computer and having endless possibilities in front of you.
But not only am I writing stories, but I'm living one:
God is the master author. He writes stories too. Many stories. And each and every one is so beautiful that we can't even comprehend it. Every story is so interweaving and intricate. Each story is individual, yet a part of one book. God writes every story from beginning to end, with every sentence inbetween.
Just as an author does, God comes up with the characters in the stories. He picks their personalities, traits and appereances. He breathes life into each character. No two characters are alike.
Not only does He come up with the character, but He comes up with their story too. I wonder what God feels like writing our story. He knows we're going to fall, He knows we're going to make wrong decisions, but He loves us anyway. He doesn't like that we fall but He loves when we rise back up again. He loves the 'messed up' characters in the story as much as He loves the 'good' characters.
God has a plan and a purpose for everyone. He wrote our story all the way to the end. He knows not only what's going on now, but what will happen at the end of the story.
So the next time you wonder why this specific thing is happening in your life, remember that we can't see the end of the story but God can. It's for a purpose. YOUR here for a purpose.
We're all characters. We all have stories.
What is your story going to be?
