Capsule for the Day 

We are a people of story. Each of our stories has the power to transform lives. We may shy away from telling our stories because we feel they aren't any good. But we miss the point. Every story is powerful. They are a part of the Bigger Story, the Story of Possibility. The Story of Christ embodies our stories. And in Him, our stories make sense.

The Israelites were very good at telling their story. They tell it as it is, whether good or bad, success or failure. The more they tell their story, the more they find themselves examining their lives and redirecting their steps. That is the power of storytelling. It changes lives and defines history. Imagine for once the lives your story can change.

Your story can inspire and challenge some. It can also be a lesson for many. Others may find in your story a goal for their lives; they may want to retell your story in their own lives. At the end of the day, your story, may in one or the other, be a game changer. Let's tell our stories. Let's be proud of them. We never know who may benefit from them.
