My Story


Have you heard this song?  “My Story” Listen to it here

“If I told you my story
You would hear Hope that wouldn’t let go
And if I told you my story
You would hear Love that never gave up
And if I told you my story
You would hear Life, but it wasn’t mine”

For the last year I have struggled with guilt that I was letting God down by not writing, but when I heard this song  I swear a little light bulb popped up over my head!  Maybe God doesn’t need me to tell my story for Him, but to remind me of who He is.  You see when I lost hope, I lost me.  I lost my purpose and my passion for this life and I lost what He is to me.  MY savior and redeemer.  When I don’t write, when I don’t tell my story I loose what He has done and is doing, and He knows this!  But I also loose out on opportunities to connect with others.

There is this woman, who has been telling me her story for years, and she doesn’t even know it.  Because she does it through sharing when she has an aha moment with God, or when she hasn’t heard from Him in years.  She does it through her authenticity when she tells me of her struggle to be a Godly wife and mom.  But I also hear it in the voices of her daughters as they grow into beautiful women.

Most of us bleed our stories into life around us and have no idea the impact we make on those around us. Tonight I was reminded of a time when I did this, and it reminded me of who I am in God.

So here I am trying to believe that my story is not inadequate and that someone needs to hear them.  Because I need to tell my story, I need to bleed it.  I need to remind myself that my story isn’t my story but His story.
