Every Wednesday, during Lent, we are participating in a Lenten Curation of Before & After Images, linking up with MeetMeintheMiddleProject.com. The Meet Me in the Middle Project is a creative way to share the truth of the gospel on blogs, Pinterest, and Instagram, through Before&After collages. Post a collage, tell the story, explain how it demonstrates the gospel. Simple!
Here is this week’s post for the MeetMeintheMiddleProject.com:
My friend Jodi is a scrapbooker, a diligent keeper of stories. She treasures the special moments, takes the pictures, and keeps the photos all organized till she can find a few minutes for herself. She saves up these memories in neat little boxes, collects just the right stickers and papers, and buys special tape and fancy scissors. And she bides her time. When she finds a few hours to craft, she lovingly arranges the pictures so that they retell those memories. She curates her family’s story.
God Wrote Your Story
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
Psalm 139:16, NLT
The Lord is the best keeper of stories. Tweet This He is the Author of all life. He plans our special moments before we are born. His scrapbook is full of stories about us, His children. He knows us so well. He sees all the messes that we are going to make, before we make them, and He loves us anyway. Tweet This In fact, He sent Jesus Christ to make sure that all of our stories, even the hard ones, have a happy ending: “We have been made right in God’s sight by faith. We have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us” (Romans 5:1, NLT).
