The truth is, we all have a story that is already written and we are in the process of playing the lead role. A story divinely written by God, whether a person believe in Him or not. Each story is specifically written for the one whose life it is, a story written by the Creator who knows our ins and outs as He placed them in our hearts, a story with a heavenly calling, designed to bring complete fulfilment in peace. Do we even understand the significance thereof? There are not two stories that are the same. Each story is unique and there is only one lead party that can play the story of every person’s life and that is the person him or herself. The only failure we can suffer in live is by trying to live another lead party’s role, one we were not chosen or prepared for.
Each story is filled with new beginnings, mountains to climb and valleys to walk through. There are storms that develop a character, blessings and promises that brings fulfilment and joy. Dreams are invested in each life. The pathway to each dream is laid out with decisions and crossroads, all at the hands of the special one whose life it is. Dark clouds sometimes arise across the horizon, stones are thrown across the road, and each one presenting the possibility of being a stepping stone or a stumbling block—a choice for one person alone. No life is a mistake, but merely a story of missed opportunities waiting with great anticipation to be rediscovered and pursued.
I have always had a very clear picture of what my life would be like until the only dream I had was crushed into pieces. I was soon faced with more decisions to make than what I was ready for: What did I want in life? What did I want to become? What did I want to leave behind? Did I want my life to have any meaning? Did I have a higher calling on my life that I have been missing by being so caught up in what I wanted and not seeing what was laid out for me to have? All the uncertainties I have been facing by always trying to live a life against all odds and having very little peace about it apart from trying to prove myself to the world? What was it all for? Never-ending questions with answers making me realize there is a whole other world out there. A world filled with endless possibilities.
Where did I have to start to have no end?
I returned to the One who knew my story. The one who created me and placed His everlasting love and calling in me—a story with no end in Him. The more I looked for Jesus, the more I saw my life through His eyes—a life of abundance in peace, filled with His presence, a life with no end.
