I love this reminder. If we desire to live a better story, a story we can reflect back on with a sense of peace and contentment, then it all comes down to where we choose for the story to start.
There have been times in my life when I’ve chosen to allow my story to run ahead of God, my pride filled heart was certain it knew the best way to go.
There have been times in my life when I’ve allowed my story to run away from God, my fear filled heart too scared to walk down unfamiliar roads, too scared to flip the page.
Today, I want my story in His capable Hands. When He says move, I want to move. When He places a hand on my shoulder and recommends I stand still, I want to heed His warning. I don’t want to rush ahead to the next chapter when God says there is still more for us to write in this one.
God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes.
