Everything changes when you know the rest of your story! In 2 Samuel 22:25, David says, “God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes” (The Message).
But what is the text of our lives? Self-help gurus and magazine headlines urge you to “find your narrative.” “Look inside yourself,” they say. But the promise of self-discovery falls short.
Your story indwells God’s. This is the great promise of the Bible. It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eyes on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone. In his story, you’ll find, there’s more to your story!
