  How Will You Write Your Story?


Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. — Hebrews 11:1, NLT


When I was young, I often snuggled into bed with a book and escaped into an imaginary world. Devoting time to reading at the end of my day eliminated stressful thoughts. I frequently kept turning another page, spellbound by a captivating story.

Word by word, the author guided me deeper into the gripping storyline. I rubbed weary eyes but refused to close the novel and fall asleep. I yearned to read another paragraph. The suspense mounted. I couldn’t wait to see whether the story ended full of promise and victory. When the characters persevered and conquered the impossible, their heroic feats created a sense of triumph.

We can compare life to a book. Just like the author of a book decides what happens in the story, we also make choices and write the pages of our lives. We face many life choices, some of which can be difficult. However, it’s up to us to decide how we respond. When we face challenges, we can ask God to help us. God is the one who can do the impossible and shape our future, making the unachievable––achievable.

God’s book emphasizes the power of hope and faith over everything else (Hebrews 11:1). Therefore, no matter our circumstances, the Bible demonstrates that belief in God gives us unwavering hope. Our creator knows the answer to our trials and needs, and our Christian faith reminds us to stay hopeful and rooted in the great “I am” rather than our current circumstances. The Bible teaches us that though the world may appear bleak, God and his followers will be victorious.

Through God’s divine guidance, we can achieve a triumphant outcome. Regardless of our “writing skills,” we’re the architects of our lives because our choices shape our destiny. Will we lead ourselves to our downfall, or will we have faith in God for a miraculous intervention? By following Christ, we can be confident of a positive outcome because the ultimate decision lies in God’s hands.

The risks and benefits of life aren’t figments of our imagination. They’re timeless realities. But the books in the Bible instruct us to approach life like a race we must triumph over. As a result, we persist and strive to finish strong, refusing to give in to defeat. We must remain loyal and determined to win the crown God promised us by writing our story for his divine glory.


Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for captivating me with your never-ending divine love. I know that trusting in Jesus leads to a marvelous future beyond comprehension. Regardless of my circumstances, I pray for the bold courage to proclaim the goodness and faithfulness of Almighty God. With your help, I hope to write my story so that I can live a life that never ends. I choose a home in heaven with you as my destiny. Amen.

Your turn: God, the creator of all life, allows us to write our own story by giving us free will. When we believe in Jesus, he promises our story will end well. How do you want your life to affect future generations? Have you thought about how you want your story to end with a satisfying and promising conclusion?
