Your Life Story

Are you busy living your life, or are you aware of your storyline?  Your life is an adventure – a novel to be read, a screenplay to be enacted.  It is peppered with hopes, fears, destinies and barriers.  It is an emotional and gripping tale.

This world is “fallen.”  It is beautiful, and there is so much good within it.  Yet, it is marred deeply by sin.  The world is full of suffering, it touches every person and every corner of creation.  We fall and we suffer ... it is part of every life, everyone’s story.

Psalm 107 is a great – “slow read.”  We see again and again that when people were suffering, “They cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them from their distress.” (Psalm 107:6, 13, 19, 28)

When we cry out to God - from that desperate place, He hears us - and we “know” it.  Real prayers are desperate prayers.  They are the prayers that rely on God.  He delivers.  He is good.  He is merciful.  He is wonderful.

Do not fear desperate circumstances.  They will come, but in Him they are not the end of the story.  We can - in our deepest selves - somehow rest, knowing that the God of deliverance sees and hears and redeems.  The desperate times are the transforming times.  Receive them in faith.

When you get a chance, step back from your life for a moment.  Look at your story.  Where are you in the plot?  What’s happening on the rest of the stage?  Where is this thing going?  What is the Author’s intent in your unique story?  How can you best live in faith in this act of your play?
