Day 26: Your Story


begins the moment you let out your first cry

beginning your


that changes from day to day

from sunrise to sunset

from year to year.

Oh how some things you wish would never change~

yet they do

Oh how some things your wish would change~

yet they do not.

But it is "your" REAL LIFE & your REAL STORY,

so you pick up the pen & start writing

what will happen next~

because shouldn't things go as you want them

because isn't it "your"


You are caught on a hamster wheel that keeps spinning

yet going nowhere

as nothing is changing in the way you have written it to be

yet it is ~

yet not as you planned.

You drop the pen

because that has been the problem the whole time

because you realize that you are not a writer.

And at that moment the lightbulb goes off

as it is so very bright


there has been SOMEONE there the whole time

allowing you to strive to write the

"what will happens"


"the what will not happens"~

yet you never are getting it right.


HE smiles

because you handed

HIM the pen


your whole manuscript

with your





and then your life




things start to change

even though

some things don't change,

yet it doesn't really matter

because you are the one who is changing~

from day to day

from sunrise to sunset

from year to year

as life becomes better than


in the hands of a


who began your


the moment HE created you.

Yet HE isn't your ghost writer

hiding behind the scenes

as HE partners with you

from page to page

never leaving you alone

because you weren't created to be alone

to do life on your own

in the first place.

Oh how it all makes sense

"All believers, come here and listen, let me tell you what GOD did for me.

I called out to HIM with my mouth, my tongue shaped the sounds of music.

If I had been cozy with evil, the LORD would never have listened.

But HE most surely did listen, HE came on the double when HE heard my prayer.

Blessed be GOD: HE didn’t turn a deaf ear,

HE stayed with me, loyal in HIS love" (Psalm 66:16-20 MSG)

Just because it was never my story to write myself,

yet HE let me do it anyway

but HE was still there

waiting for me & waiting for you

as HE will never

leave us where we are

because HE has so much more for

me & you & everyone else

because HE was always there

and will always be there~

"THERE WAS JESUS" (listen to the song below)
