There’s nothing better than a good story. Personal stories are valuable tools that helps us relate to others -to be able to understand that everyone is connected on some level. Even though we celebrate the Lord’s creativity in making every single person lovingly and intentionally unique, our human connections keep us banded together. all of us experience happiness, sadness, love, humor and even despair at one point or another throughout life. Stories help us celebrate who we are, and remind us that we are never, ever, alone.
Sometimes the greatest thing that could ever happen to us is realizing that to focus on God, rather than ourselves, brings hope and redemption in a far more effective way than focusing on what we are doing wrong and how we will fix it.
