Your Story Matters & Mediterranean Omelette

Psalm 107:2 (nirv)

Let those who have been set free by the Lord tell their story. He set them free from the power of the enemy.

There are around 7.7 billion people on the planet right now. If I had to type that number out with zeros, I couldn’t, because I don’t even know how many zeros that is. But I know it’s a lot.

Sometimes, it’s hard to feel like I matter in a world full of billions. Each and every person has a story, so why does mine matter? Does mine matter? Yes, it does. And yours does too. Our stories matter because we’ve been redeemed and set free; that makes them priceless and indispensable.

I often wish I didn’t have the past that I do. I wish I hadn’t lost my virginity before I could drive. I wish I hadn’t plastered a huge, tribal butterfly tattoo across my lower back. I wish I had said different things, and done different things. I wish I could call a do-over and go back. But that past is a piece of my story. That past is someone else’s present; someone who hasn’t yet been set free. Someone who will probably believe that a perfect God would never choose them or love them. Someone who needs to see and needs to hear a story that only I can share with them.

There are parts of my story that I’d rather not share; but it’s impossible to appreciate the outcome without hearing the details. No one wants to hear how the show ends without seeing the entire series for themselves; it’s the reason the term “spoiler alert” was invented. The destination is what makes it beautiful, but the journey is what makes it relatable.

You have a story too, and you don’t have to be a blogger, or a writer, or a pastor to tell it. In fact, our stories get told all the time. They’re told through relationship, through business transactions, through the things we share on social media, to the way we interact with strangers on the street. The story of Jesus can be told through a quick smile.

Your past might not be quite as colorful as mine, but you have something to share and you’re the only one for the job. Your story has substance, and it packs a powerful punchline. Your story is what happens when you and Jesus come together. And that is something that’s definitely worth sharing.

Write

What opportunities do you have to share your story? Can you think of anyone that might be influenced or impacted by hearing your story? What parts of your story do you think God wants to use right now?

Pray

For Jesus to be glorified through your story, and for it to make a positive impact on those who hear it.

Tips & Tools

First of all, can I just tell you guys how much learning to roast a red pepper has changed my life? I mean, I hardly ever do it, but the fact that I know how… life changing. It makes me wonder if sun dried tomatoes are really just tomatoes that have been sitting on someone’s back porch in the sun for the last 6 months?

Remember the key to making a good looking omelette is proper tools and constant movement! And also, remember that it tastes the same even if it looks terrible!
