My Story…

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”.

My Story

Craig Groeschel

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?

    I want to be Happy and Healthy…truly happy and not just the person hiding behind the "million dollar" smile. People always comment on my smile and if they only knew the pain hiding behind on it. To be truly healthy and physically feel good, not just doing it to look good and attractive. To be able to move better and live life in a better way then I currently am. I look forward to hearing the sermons. Thanks for this post! 🙂

    I go to LC in Tulsa, and am LOVING this series. It's hard to pick just one thing, but this year I'm working on my time management. I want to be a person who makes time to do everything God has called me to 🙂
