Creating 'spaces' to experience the presence of God

What is the story that God is telling?

What is the story that God is telling?

We all have a story. A tale of triumph. Of tragedy. Pain. Glory. Intrigue.

What is this tale? What is it that God is telling?

My story is probably no different to yours. Its themes, it struggles the same, yet the way, the circumstances different. We all have our ashes, our mourning. But we all have our beauty, & we can all have joy.

What is the story that God is telling?

He is telling us something in these days. He is telling us something about himself, ourselves & of a greater story unfolding.

You see our stories, our personal tales of triumph & tragedy, weave into a larger story. This is part of the beauty & joy. This is part of the community. The story that God is telling, is really all about him. The irony is that it is not about us, but about who he is & what he can do. Theses threads run thru the tapestry of our lives & they always begin when we are young. His nature shows its hand when we are young, very young.

There is a truth, a truth about God. Would you, would I be prepared to live a journey to find this out? The challenge of this journey that I embarked upon was that the journey had to be traveled his way, not mine.

This still remains the challenge. Perhaps even more so now than when I first begun.

In our story are answers. Answers for a generation that God is birthing now, developing now. Answers of his glory, his majesty, his victory. And it is these answers that are parts of our inheritance passed from one generation to another.

There are declarations to be made. Truths to be spoken out, triumphs to be had. Your story matters. My story matters, because in them there is something important God is saying… and this is the point. God speaks. God has a voice that needs to be heard. Do you know what God is saying to you? What he is saying thru you? The voice of God is a powerful thing. In every instance, when God speaks, he creates. When God breathes, he breathes life. And here in, is also the point, life. A life to the full. Life, not death. Full not empty.
