The life we live is our story, ours alone. Many, including yours truly, have chosen to capture part or all of their story in a book. If you were attempting to put your story on the printed page, how would you characterize it: love story, adventure, drama, comedy, inspirational, or something else?
If you set out to write this book, what words would appear on its pages? Where would the material or words come from? What activities, relationships or experiences have you immersed yourself in that have a direct bearing on your story?
As the pages of your book begin to accumulate it becomes evident that the words need to be organized into chapters. How does one determine when one chapter ends and a new one begins? In my story, new chapters corresponded with changes of scenery and vocation, or new relationships and responsibilities. At other times a new chapter began when my life headed in a new direction. Directional life changes can be physical, emotional, or spiritual.
The further along I get in my story, the more I find myself putting emphasis on the spiritual chapters of my life. I worry less and less about searching for some new thing to experience and instead find myself turning to a blank page and engaging the Savior of my life to help me determine my direction.
My you find peace and contentment on the road you travel in life. May the words of your book be pages of substance and eternal value. May you find the meaning of life and experience abundant living.
These are the words of Jesus found in John 10:10, “My purpose is to give them [us] a rich and satisfying life.” NLT
