In Their Own Words 1.25.12

Posted: 01/25/2012 in Uncategorized

This week’s quote comes from Redemption (freed by Jesus from the idols we worship and the wounds we carry) by Mike Wilkerson.

Topic: God’s Story

Rather than trying to write God into our stories, we would be wiser to sit patiently with our Father and let him tell us his. We would surely find ourselves in his story and learn that we are not defined by our hurts or our sins, as we may have believed. As he tells us his story, we must be willing to let go of our stories we’ve told to make sense of our lives. We must let his story rewrite ours and sweep us up into something much greater than ourselves. (pg. 27)
