Check the Narrative

Narrative: a spoken or written account of connected events; a story. A narrative or story is an account of a series of related events, experiences, or the like, whether true or fictitious. 

What narrative are we telling ourselves about ourselves, life and those around us? What do we believe to be true of our story? Who are we getting our facts from? What are we using to filter our narrative through? It is so important that we pause and listen to the narrative we are telling ourselves. It could literally change our destiny, the trajectory of our life. It could be the difference between life and death, freedom and bondage, hope and despair. Moving forward or staying stuck. 

Does our narrative match with God's word? Does it align with God's truth and what he says about us? What a great opportunity we have in this season to take the time to listen to the narrative we are saying and believing. And go before God and ask him to help adjust, align and rewrite, rewire the parts that is not true of who he is and who we are. Let's do the courageous and brave work to be the best version of us - as God intended. To see the good, bad, ups and downs through the lens of his love and resurrection power. We can and should acknowledge the facts of our story, but the facts does not have to be the sound track to the narrative we tell. God is a redeeming father. He's able to turn all things for good. Nothing is wasted in his hands. 

May the narrative of our life be authentic, life giving not because it is a perfect story or a story about perfect people but it speaks to a good father that perfects our steps with his grace and love.
