Life is a series of short stories.

A year ago I was hiking the jungles of Peru. Two weeks before that, I was sitting on a front porch with an elderly gentleman, watching the clouds go by and thankful for my blessings. It’s only been a year, but he’s passed on, and even though I am sad that he’s gone, I feel blessed to have known and cared for such a great man.

Today, I sit with a lovely lady. Once a model, today she faces her days with lost memories of the past. But still, we sit and watch the same clouds go by.

God did all of this. He knows my story from beginning to end. Yet, I have never felt more alive, living and loving life, right where I’m needed.

Life doesn’t always work out as we plan, but we can count on this: God brought us into the world, knew us before we were born, and will never leave us.

God enriches my story every day. What about you? How’s your storyline going? Are you trusting the Author for a great outcome?

Trust Jesus today. Your life-story will never be the same.

Mark 5:19 – “And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”
