I wasn't going to write this summer. But the more that I have read - the more that I find myself wanting to say. Bible in 90 days is more amazing this summer than last, more captivating and exciting...so when I saw that today's Five Minute Friday word was "story" I knew I had to share this :
As my eyes race across the pages and their stories unfold word by word I slowly begin to connect the dots. How one story sets the stage for another and how His faithfulness is the thread that stitches each line, each paragraph, each page together. Because of Him, His goodness, His faithfulness, His provision there is a story to tell. Each King, each citizen of the nation of Israel lived and died, some were faithful to His covenant, some were not. Despite it all He was who He was, who He is, and who He will be because He can be nothing less than that. He is the great I AM. His is a story of chariots of fire surrounding His servants, of healing and protection, of calling the ordinary out of being ordinary and breathing into them the extraordinary capture my heart and toss around in my thoughts through out the day.
When I take my last breath here and the period stands firm at the end of the line, when there is nothing left to say about who I am and what I did there will be SO much to say about Him still. His story will never be done, His Words will never fall to the ground or fail to mean something for all of us. So if you are searching for a great summer read, an adventure that will captivate your heart and soul, grab your Bible up and dig in, you will not be disappointed.
