TELL ME A STORY

Story

Down through the ages the world has been filled with stories.  Sitting around an open fire, roasting marshmallows and enjoying some fresh, country air, seems to be as good a place as any to start one.  My husband happens to be a great story teller.  His stories appeal to all ages, mainly because they have an element truth to them, but he has managed to embellish them over the years, so that they have actually become much like his art.  They have been mingled and mottled with colorful phrases and each time they are told, I discover something new I them.  I’m not sure if he does that for my benefit, or his, or for the benefit of his audience.   In my next few posts, I’m going to share some of his stories with you – some of them true, some of them a continuation of truth.

Jesus also told stories to His disciples to get them thinking about things – to stir their imagination – to think outside the structural box – to learn about His kingdom, heaven.  Parables have been an effective way of communicating for centuries and like the fables of ancient days, they come with some kind of valuable life lessons and a moral.

Search the scriptures for these amazing stories.  I’ve found something new in each one of them over time.  God is pretty amazing that way.  His Word is full of wonderful tales of men, women and children who overcame difficult obstacles.  These ordinary folks were led to do extraordinary things, but unlike the elaborate epics we contrive, they were changed by the love of God in their lives.

He can change the world if he wants to .  He did, when He sent His Son to suffer for our iniquities.  The Bible is directly from the mouth of God.   He inspired the words into the pens of men and they are the best stories ever, because they are true.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. I love how in the stories Jesus often asks the people questions- increasing their engagement.
