Writing Your Story
Each and every day, we get to write our story.
I don't know how your story for yesterday ended. I don't know how your story for today is shaping up. I do know that tomorrow you get to begin a new story--maybe more than one story.
Working? Going to school? Running errands? Spending a quiet day at home?
Think about the characters in your day.
Will there be a bully in your day? How will you respond?
Will there be a person in need? Will you help them?
Some of the characters in your day will make their regular appearances and fill their regular roles. Others may be new and unexpected characters. You have little control over the other characters in your day, but you have total control over the central character in your story -- YOU!
You can be a hero or a villain.
You can be productive or destructive.
You can contribute or you can be a taker.
You can be a somebody or you can be a nobody.
You can be the center of attention or you can be an invisible presence.
You can glorify your Maker or bring shame to His cause.
Plan your day well.
Write your story.
And if it doesn't turn out the way you want it to, write a better story tomorrow!
