Have you noticed that some kids like “story time” more than others? Owen will sit during story after story. Emma “listens” while playing with her toys. Greg often reads to them both before bedtime.
I love hearing stories, real life and fiction, because so often I can relate to some part of the story. Greg was telling Nathan the story of Les Miserables the other day. Greg thought He could give a good over view, but Nathan wanted more. It brought back that story to all of us, but more importantly the meaning of the story. It’s a tale of God’s real love, mercy, forgiveness, and redemption. It’s amazing really. If you havent read the book or seen the movie, it’s worth reading or watching.
Les Miserables is a famous story, but it’s also a story we can all relate too. There is a story of God’s forgiveness, love, and redemption for each of us. Some have discovered their story and others are still waiting to discover it. Our stories are found in His story. God became a man and dwelt among us.
Luke 2:6,7 (NIV)
“6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.”
Prayer: Lord thank you that your story is written in my life. Because you became a man you know me fully and can relate to every struggle I face. Thank you for your story, which is the story of redemption for all man kind. Help me to see more of your story in my life today.
