It's Friday and Lisa-Jo has given this writing prompt: STORY. We write for 5 unedited minutes each Friday and you could join us!
Most of us live so much in our own world, in our own heads, that we miss the story of other people. We all have story, it's just that we are so busy living ours that we fail to dig in deep and read the stories of those around us.
Not all of our stories are non-fiction. Some are fiction we create to cope with what is too real, too painful, too boring, or too unbelievable.
One story happens to us all, though. We get to choose our part. We have to choose our part, and the ending is beautiful or devastating.
Jesus enters with His story at some point, and one way or another, we are forever changed.
I used to read those books as a kid, the ones where you choose your own ending. I would start over each time and read it with a new ending.
I like the story that doesn't end.
