Everyone has a favorite story.
For some it’s a picture book or a fairy tale from their childhood.
Or a classic novel or a thriller that you stay up late to see how it ends.
For others their favorite story is a part of their history. A story of how their mom and dad met. Or the dark and stormy night that they were born.
People can find drama and distraction or inspiration and meaning in stories.
Stories are powerful because of the connection they form between the storyteller and the reader or listener.
Stories can make us laugh or cry. They can provoke us to action or deep introspection.
Each of us are interested in our own story. We have invested everything we have into the telling of this story.
Yet God is even more invested in our story than we are. He knows our potential. He knows the role that we were crafted for.
