Learn To Craft Your Story
God can use the good and the broken pieces.
So, first things first. What does it mean to CRAFT your story? Well, Ephesians 2:10 tells us that we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works which were prepared in advance for us to do. This is huge! This is monumental! And, this is where you start on the road to a significantly crafted story-by knowing that you were not made in bulk. You were not mass-produced on some assembly line. You are more than just another face in the crowd. You are God’s handiwork, his craftsmanship. You are his idea, and he has already prepared an incredible story for you to enter into. That’s some exciting stuff!
Too often, we get so busy doing life that we fail to stop and take a good look at what exactly it is we are doing with our lives and ask ourselves, ‘Am I heading in the right direction?’ The result? Well, the stories of our lives wind up being written without any intentionality or purpose. We wander aimlessly and settle for a generic story that never reaches its full potential. But the God who made you has so much more than that in store for your story!
We want to help you dig into your life story in a more meaningful way and here’s how:
By learning more about God’s uniquely crafted design and plan for your life
By learning how to deal with and find healing for the difficult chapters that we all have in our stories.
And by moving forward into the next chapter of your story excited to know that the best is yet to come. It’s time to CRAFT a better story with your life!
Ready To Get Started
Reflect. Craft. Pray. Repeat.
The first step in crafting a better story with your life is reflecting on where you’ve been, where you are, and where you’re heading according to God’s plan for you. In the same way a skilled artisan invests care, time, and precision into their trade, consider the love and intention of your Maker when He crafted the purpose for your life.
As Christians, we’re called to be proactive, to be intentional, and to actively seek out God’s will for us, trusting He is the true author of our story. Review the questions, jot down your thoughts, pray, listen, and reflect again. Consider this first step to CRAFT your story as a process, meant to be repeated often. Trust that each time you reflect, God reveals more of what He wants for you and how you can live the unique purpose He has planned for you.
Help me to trust in your plan and purpose for every chapter of my life. Grant me patience to slow down to hear your voice and give peace to my heart that aches to know you. I ask that you guide me each day to stay in the center of your will for me, to forgive me when I fall away, and to strengthen my belief that you are the one true author of my story and that the best is yet to come.
