Yesterday as I spent time with God reading and praying I had a strong sense of this message. What do you think? Is your story cloudy?
"Tell my people their story is cloudy. There is no sunshine when I'm gone out of people's lives. Their lives seem dark and without joy. There is no hope. People look for hope in the world around them. They have forgotten me. They've given in to their wants and clamor for the world's lures.
But they soon forgot what he had done
and did not wait for his plan to unfold.
In the desert they gave in to their craving;
in the wilderness they put God to the test.
Psalm 106: 13-14, NIV
Make your story a clear best seller!
God wants us to tell people through our live stories: "I am your sunshine, your joy and your crown. I am your treasure, your abundance and your provision. I bring life in the desert."
"Return to me," says the Lord. "Turn away from your wicked ways. Live your life and story for me and in the light of my Presence."
"Return to me all you who are weary and heavy laden. I will give you rest. (Matthew 11: 28, 29) I will take care of you. I am all you need. I am the Lord who comforts you and there is no other."
We need to live our stories clearly...like Kathy when God invited her to use just $5.
“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me
and understand that I am he.
Before me no god was formed,
nor will there be one after me."
Isaiah 43: 10-11, NIV
