The Story of Life

The answer to the question, "Who am I?" can only be given if we ask "What is my story?" and that can only be answered if there is an answer to the further question, "What is the whole story of which my story is a part?" ~Leslie Newbigin

The big story... God's story... is one that we are privileged with being a part of. Once we get on board with the idea that we are a part if His story and then sit back and review what our individual stories are, it's pretty neat to think about who we are and how to live ON PURPOSE. Rather than just wandering through life, I want to see where God is working and throw myself in there to be a part of it. On purpose. The above quote is from a study I just finished up. It sounds deep on paper, but it's really simplistic when I realize this life is all about God and what He's doing and not about ME and what I can do to impress Him or gain His acceptance. It's freeing actually!
