Every story – whether a book or a movie – has what are called plot points. These are pivotal moments in the story that send the character on a different path. Those moments ultimately define the character and the direction of the story. Writers tell us that we need these plot points because if nothing ever happened in the story it would be pretty boring. And sometimes – the character might not even realize the moment was so important until they look back on it.
God created each of us with a specific purpose in mind. We are each the character in our own story and all of us are supporting characters in the bigger story that God is writing for the whole world. The places we’ve been, the things we’ve experienced, the events that have shaped us are all part of our story. We might not have recognized it at the time, but looking back we can see God was in every moment. We have the opportunity to take what we have learned in our journey and make a difference in someone else’s life.
We all have a story.
How are you using your story to help others along in their journey?
