Stories




Is the story of God in my life bigger than my weaknesses and inabilities?

Is the story of God in my life more than my sins?

Is the story of God in my life more than my failures? 

Is the story of God in my life bigger than the story of others’ sins against me?

Is the story of God in my life greater than the story of my divorce?

Is the story of God in my life more fantastic than my identity?

Is the story of God in my life more than my gender identity? My sexual orientation?

Is the story of God the story of my life? Or am I allowing the other stories to climb up and be bigger and greater and more?

Jesus said in John 10:10: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (NASB)
