I went to Community Group tonight. I almost stayed home with Kenny and the boys. (We didn’t want to take Carsyn, just to make sure he was better.) I am glad that I did not stay home. We are having a conversation about the Bible and how the whole Bible is God’s Story. It isn’t about the people in the Bible. Everything in there happened because God wanted to tell His story. To spread the word about Him.
The leaders Tony and Dani said that the same is true about the World today. People do not understand why things have happened to them. One of the questions I have had since learning of Carsyn’s diagnosis is why is this happening to me. I went into this a little more awhile back. I have finally accepted this life is my reality. I have always thought of this as My Story and how I can impact people. That I can handle it all. The discussion tonight helped me to realize that it is actually God’s Story. He has planned everything out. He knows exactly why, and who He will touch through me.
My Story is God’s Story.
My story is unfinished. God’s story is unfinished. God is not done with me yet. I may not understand how everything is connected right now, but it is nice to know that truly I am not alone. God has a plan for how He will use me and what I have gone through to reach out to someone. I always knew that God has a plan for my life, but I never really thought about it as His story.
What do you think?
Have you ever thought about your life and your story actually being God’s story?
As a side note, Carsyn will hopefully be getting his wheelchair on Friday. I can not wait!
