These Are The Chapters Of Your Life


Not as catching as "The Days Of Your Life", but it gets my point across (I hope). chapters I have several young people working with me. Some are finishing high school while others are preparing for their college graduation. Papers, exams, hurrying up to get finished; they cannot wait to graduate.

Graduation: Turn the page for the next chapter in your life. Chapters, there are so many. Some we want to hurry and get through; we are ready to move on. Others we want to last forever and never change. But, life changes and new chapters begin. Our lives are like a book. There is the opening sentence, the closing sentence and a lot of "stuff" in-between. Sometime,if you become a Christian, a main theme becomes inserted. If not, your life never has a theme and the book rambles and turns, going from place to place, never quite making sense.

The main theme: Christ is the thread that holds your story together. Are your chapters well written? Is there proper transition, a thread of continuity? Is God the author of your story, or do you try to become a Ghost Writer and take "the pen in hand." If so, when a "game changer" (tragedy, job change or loss, birth, marriage, loved ones death, etc.) comes into place your story becomes muddled and confused, lacking structure and cohesiveness to hold the story together.

If I started a blog and some one pushed me out of the way to finish what I was trying to write, confusion would be the result. Why not let the Author finish what He started?

Hebrews 12:22 (NASB)“fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Or, you can go ahead and pick up the “pen” yourself, tell God you don’t trust Him with your life and make a mess of the chapters of your story.
