Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Story.

Whether we see ourselves as a storyteller or not, each of our lives is telling a story. There are parts of our stories we love to tell as they make us split a side laughing with each retelling. And there are those, we hardly ever utter as the memory is one we would prefer to forget.

No one – other than me – will get to write my story. This morning I am reminded that with every sunrise our story just begins:

“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” (Lamentations 3:22-23, NLT)

Each of our lives is our personal story, the telling of our journey with our Savior. It is as unique to us as each snowflake, which also are one of a kind creations.

Every tear, heartache, mistake, and difficulty tells as much a part of my story as the laughter, successes, and blessings. They weave in utter perfection to tell the story of how Jesus is intricately, and personally, involved in every detail of my life.

Every morning we open our eyes and are immediately faced with a choice –

Will we lift our eyes up to gaze on the One Whose story our lives will tell?

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

(Lyrics from the old hymn, Blessed Assurance)
