Five Minute Friday Prompt: Story

GO

My story is one of joy and sorrow. It touches my soul so deeply that some days I dare not speak of it.
Many people told me they never heard such a wild tale before, only in the movies do people act that way.

My story fell apart in ways I never imagined. No one understood the pain, the grief, the desperation I felt when trying to put it all together.

No one, except Him.

God is in the business of writing our stories in glorious fashion. He takes our fragmented sentences, half-read paragraphs, and unfinished chapters and fills in the blanks. * Click to Tweet!

He creates a new page for us each day, we just need to be willing to listen. Through our once thought-out plans, He calls us to be more.

He tells me to trust in Him for the rest of the story. And so I did.
