In Oklahoma we would attend Life Church (not nearly enough) and Matt and I loved how relateble the messages were. This church is pretty amazing and we miss it…. Luckily for us you can watch all the messages online and yesterday a friend of mine earged me to start the current series “My Story”.
One day we’re all going to tell a story about our lives. The decisions we make today will determine the story we’ll tell tomorrow. In the series, My Story, we’re going to learn to live a story worth telling.
You can check Life church out by clicking HERE and watch a message that is pertinent to your life. This message got me thinking of what do I want? What should the chapters in my story be? And last night in bed I was thinking about what I want to be and this question is little “off base” but the message above got me thinking. What do I want to be? Who do I want to be? So, I thought I would share a list with you…..some of these things I might already be, some I will strive to be and others are full of hope……..
I want to be someone who looks at both sides of the story.
I want to be someone who can forgive and let things go.
I want to be someone that friends and family can lean on.
I want to be someone who thinks before she speaks.
I want to be someone who is a glass half full person.
I want to be someone who has patience.
I want to be someone who lets resentments go.
I want to be someone whose past is the past.
I want to be someone who has hope for her future.
I want to be someone with a marriage full of trust, hope, passion and forgiveness.
I want to be someone who follows thru.
I honestly could go on and on and in fact the message in the first My Story was to not pick more than 1. Pick 1 thing that you think God wants you to be, nurture it and have discipline with it. And the thought is if you succeed with that “story/attribute/goal” tent you will be happy, proud and those feelings would snowball over to the next thing on your life. A question I have been asking myself lately when facing something “challenging” is….”How will this affect the big picture?” Or in this case how will this affect my story? I think we would all like to look back in years and see the point where out story got better.
So friends…….. I would love it if you would leave me a comment and tell me What do you want to be? Who do you want to be?
