Jesus Every line your story, Jesus
Author of my faith
These are the lines from a new song soon to be released on a new album from NewSpring Church, SC. (Watch the full song here)
I left home at the age of 19 starry eyed dreaming of doing great things for the glory of the author of my faith and saviour Jesus. The story to be written was to be glorious.
Now 33 years later I look back and the story certainly has been glorious but not in the way I thought it would be.
It is glorious not because of what I have achieved for God but what he has achieved in me.
It is glorious not because of my greatness but because of His supremacy.
It is glorious not because of my choices but his kindness in protecting me from my own foolishness.
It is glorious not because of my faithfulness but because of His unfailing love.
It is glorious not because of my good deeds but because of His grace.
I am written with Glory because its not my story that is being written, it the story of a faithful, merciful, gracious, supreme saviour, Jesus.
And for the story yet to be written, be it short or long in this life, my prayer is that it be your story that is written Jesus. And that I will embrace your story for my life whatever twist and turn that may take because your story always ends in Glory.
