Transforming My History

"Learn to appreciate difficult days... As you journey through rough terrain with Me, gain confidence from your knowledge that together we can handle anything... I remain the same throughout time and eternity. This is the basis of your confidence." (327)
There really is nothing quite like walking through a tough experience together... with a friend, your spouse, or as a family. Joe and I have experienced this with our own family, our church family, even with a whole city of families. Going through a difficult time together and coming out on the other side... so bonded, so confident and so grateful for one another!
The same is true in our relationship with Jesus. Each challenge is an opportunity to develop a personal history with a Sovereign Savior.
I want my life story to really be HIS story! Much like the unfolding of a mystery, each scenerio reveals how He's transforming my story to be His story! After all, it's really all about Him, anyway! So, I can be confident that a Sovereign Savior who began a good work in me will carry it on to completion, day by day, until the day Jesus comes for me.
My friend, Melissa, found the following video clip. Listen to the Philippians 1:6 passage put to music and sung by Steve Green.
To watch copy & paste:

He who began a good work in you
He who began a good work in you
Will be faithful to complete it
He'll be faithful to complete it
He who started the work
Will be faithful to complete it in you

If the struggle you're facing
Is slowly replacing
Your hope with despair
Or the process is long
And you're losing your song
In the night you can be sure
That the Lord has His hand on you
Safe and secure
He will never abandon you
You are His treasure
And He finds His pleasure in you

So, no matter if this is a delightful day or a difficult day, we can be confident that...
His Story can Radically Improve Our Story ...dmc
