When I woke up this morning, I kept hearing this line from Tauren Wells’ song playing over and over in my mind “God’s not done writing your story…God’s not done writing your story.” It always makes me wonder when that happens if I heard the song right before going to bed or if it’s just something God is speaking to my heart. I really don’t know the answer this morning. But what I do know is that God’s not done writing my story. I also know He’s not done writing yours either!! There are many scriptures in the Bible that attest to this, and one of them that I hold to is Jeremiah 29:11 –
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I’m so thankful that God writes the story of my life because He has written it much more beautifully than I ever could have!! I know He’s not done with me yet. I’m still a work in progress. I’m still growing and evolving!! I’m also still making mistakes and bad choices along the way that I have to ask forgiveness for. The most beautiful pieces of my story are the redemptive ones because the light can shine through those broken places.
Sometimes we take the pen out of God’s hands and start trying to write our own story.
Can I just encourage you to give the Master Writer the pen and allow Him to craft your story? He’s weaving things into your story now that are chapters ahead. We can’t see them but just like in the book of Esther, He is weaving your life and placing you in the right place at the right time to fulfill your purpose and complete that chapter of your story so you can turn the page for the next one.
Don’t be afraid to let others hear your story as well because God can use our story to encourage others!! If you’re wondering today whether God still has a plan for you, then I want you to know that YES!! YES, He does!! He’s not done writing your story!!!
