Don't get me wrong I would love to ascribe to my story the story of one of the great biblical characters. But is that fair? Fair to them? Fair to me? Maybe in the drama of life we play different characters as their story intersects our story in life. LIke the year of my life when I got tired of being a "good" kid and decided to leave the God-life. That was a year that the part of Jonah was played by Michael Mercer. Or what about in 2008 when our twin sons were born and I excelled in my full-time job and pulled a 4.0 that semester in my Mdiv studies. I felt like Isaac who couldn't do wrong and was blessed with double the joy. When I first began my ministry career I found myself being someone's Timothy. When seasons of doubt come I feel the heart of Thomas.
Is there a character that I identify with overall?
This is a question I will ponder as I dwell of my story and God's story this year.
Is there a character you identify with in your life?
