We are all stewards of our own personal stories. They are arrows in our quiver. In them lies the potential to inspire others and change cultures.
Each experience we have contributes to the story of our lives. But it's up to us to fashion them into meaningful stories. A bad experience doesn't have to ruin your story. You have the power to attach the right meaning to it.
David (who killed Goliath) was not free from failures in his life. He made some terrible choices but this didn't stop him from making his story great.
You have a great story to tell. It is great because it has the imprint of God etched in the very fabric of your story. When you recognize His fingerprint, you will never see your story the same way again.
Your story is part of the greatest story this world will ever hear. It's the story of God and how much he loves his children. It is still being written as of this moment by billions of co-writers all around the world, including you.
So go and write your story. Share it to others. If not, just share it with yourself. And you will be inspired by it. You will grow because of it. The more you share it, the more you grow and the more you inspire yourself and others because of it.
