Five Minutes on Story…
When I was growing up I decided I didn’t like my story. I wanted to have the power to change it. Forget it, or at least write a new story.I didn’t want the story that was mine because is felt dirty, was dirty. It included Un-story like circumstances. Divorce, sexual abuse, neglect, pain were all part of my story. My story included labels and names I wanted to tear off, like runaway, delinquent, drop out, and slut. Not pretty, right. I’ve worn all of those stories and yet, I am not ashamed.
Because the One who gives His glory has altered my story completely.
Stopped this girl, in her tracks, picked her up, washed her clean and set her on a new path.
I am not the sum total of these labels or names. They don’t hurt me anymore.
I am not enslaved by them. They hold no power over me, anymore.
I have been set free, by the One who sets the Story straight.
(I was going to edit the s word but it was raw and from the heart so hoping you will give me grace – just keeping it, ok?)
