Life Story

Your life tells a story.  What story is it telling right now?

Is your life story the one of someone defeated?  Always running into problems and always full of worry and doubt.

If your life story one of perfection?  We all know that no one is perfect, but do we put on that mask and portray a perfect life to others?

Is your life story one lacking in joy?  Always full of anger, rage, and negativity.

Or is your life story one that reflects Christ?  Problems come, but you run to the cross.  Even in bad times there is joy in your heart and it reflects on your face and in your attitude.

When someone sees my life, I want them to see the real me.  The flaws and all.  I want them to know that life is not perfect.  I want them to see that I do have bad days and I do get moody.  But I want them to see that there is joy no matter what the circumstances are.  That is how they find Jesus.  Too often people think they have to wait until they are perfect to come to Him, so they wait.  But they will never be perfect.  Too often people see Christians angry and gloomy and think "why do I need that, no way!"  I want my life story to be real.  I want my life story to reach people.

What is your life story saying?

Sweet Blessings~

  2. What a wonderful post! I want people to see the real me and I want them to see Jesus in me. That is very important to me. I am grouchy a lot of the time but I have joy in the Lord and that is what I want everyone to see. Thanks for the great post.

    Blessings to you and love you.
