Long Overdue

I am a writer who doesn’t take enough time to write. In a culture that so greatly values productivity, I find myself feeling guilty for the hours-on-end that I would prefer to spend with a pen in my hand, journal in my lap, and cup of coffee on the table next to me.

But I am reminded that God is a writer.

One of the greatest revelations I ever had was realizing that I was not the main character in the story of my life. The questions that so many people ask– “If God knew we would sin, why did He create us?” “If God is good, why would He let this happen to me?”–were all answered by the simple yet profound understanding that this story is not about me. As a matter of fact, it’s not about humans at all!

The Great Story we find ourselves in is a story by God, about God. Our Author is the Father, our Narrator the Holy Spirit, and the Star of the Story is Jesus Christ. We know this by reading the Word, remembering that at the end of the script, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord over all!

My life has become far less confusing since accepting that truth–the truth that I was actually created to play a part in a story about Christ. What brings me even more peace is, while I may not know the outcome of each season of my life, I DO know how my story ultimately ends. The grand finale is set in stone, assured to me, and constantly confirmed to me by the Holy Spirit’s presence in my life.

So here, on this little blog page, is where I will attempt to get out of me what the Creator reveals to me about this masterpiece we find ourselves a part of. I hope it blesses someone. 🙂
