A Better Story

Tell a better story. Or rather, tell the story from a redeemed perspective. Remember the story from the lens of his goodness. Re-frame the story from his faithfulness. Recount the details from the posture of grace. Narrate the story through the voice of his love and compassion. May the resounding theme of our story be that of a rescue love story. 

Not every part of our story is good, happy or necessarily "ends" well. But because God is the author of our story, we can still tell a better story. His love for us and towards us enables us to tell a better story. While we cannot change some of the facts and details of our story, we are also not defined by those facts or details. God defines who we are. He alone gives us our identity. 

He says I am...
Approved.
Accepted.
Enough.
Loved.
Significant.
Valuable.
Redeemed.
Included. 
New.
Able.
Secure. 
Strong. 
His.

I can tell a better story.
