It Matters

We are made to tell our story and listen to the ones around us. We are storytellers because our Father is an eternal Storyteller. He weaved our story into us before He gave creation its first breath – before He gave it to us. Our story is not finished with our final breath, not even when the earth breathes its last. 

Why wouldn’t we gently share and carefully listen to find out what it means to be human, what it means to be fully known and completely loved? 

I wonder if we might even walk into danger if we don’t tell and listen. We might find ourselves forced to hear it while it’s squeezed out with a final, earthly breath on a cold concrete. 

We are made to tell our stories and listen to the ones around us. 

Philippians 2:3
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

  2. “Our story is not finished with our final breath, not even when the earth breathes its last.” I never thought of that before! Of course our stories will continue! I’m thinking there might be adventure awaiting us in heaven. Perhaps we’ll finally be able to fly! God has fulfilling work planned for us to do, I’m sure. And can you imagine working alongside the Bible heroes and famous Christians from the ages? Only God knows the glorious stories of eternity, but this is for certain: they will be above and beyond anything we can imagine now! Thank you, Heidi, for fun possibilities to ponder!

    1. Sweet Nancy, I have a sense we will not only get to know the “famous” heroes, but also those whose deeds were never noticed here on earth. I can’t wait… and you and I get to hang out, too … Oh what a day … no time and space restrains. (I tell my counselor this all the time … “I can’ t wait for heaven, when I get more than an hour with you and don’t have to pay to you to talk about God! 🤣

      1. Yes, if you and I never have a chance to meet face-to-face here, we’ll have eternity to enjoy one another’s company in heaven. I’m looking forward to that too!


  3. I love stories, especially “God stories.” One of the many things I look forward to in eternity is meeting all the other saints and hearing their God stories – especially the one’s I’ve prayed for. 🙂

    1. Yes, Annie… can you possible imagine … (see what Nancy said above) … I think we all are thinking the same thing. Keep praying, sister! In doing so you are making that time in heaven even sweeter! ❤️

  4. Beautiful, Heidi. Yes, right now I want to listen to others’ stories and not just tell my own.

    1. I am learning. I agree with Paul in this, “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.” Philippians 3:12
      Keep going, sweet Jeanne. You are part of the greatest story ever told!
