What is your Story?

What is your Story? Have you found it? Do you keep putting it off? We all have a Story — an Epic we are meant to be part of. Perhaps that’s why people love books and film so much. They let us enter someone else’s Story. Maybe that should remind us to look for our own. Never stop searching until you find yours. Don’t be content with just waking up every day to randomness. Find what you were meant to do. What you were meant to be.

John Eldridge writes in his book Epic

Notice that all the great stories pretty much follow the same story line. Things were once good, then something awful happened, and now a great battle must be fought or a journey taken…

It’s true of every fairy tale, every myth, every Western, every epic…Have you ever wondered why?

Every story, great and small, shares the same essential structure because every story we tell borrows its power from a Larger Story, a Story woven in the fabric of our being…

All of these stories borrow from the Story. From Reality. We hear echoes of it through our lives. Some secret written on our hearts. A great battle to fight, and someone to fight for us. An adventure, something that requires everything we have, something to be shared with those we love and need.

There is a Story that we just can’t seem to escape. There is a Story written on the human heart.
