#Write31Days – Oct 30 – Story

It is hard to believe 30 days have come and gone of the #Write31Days challenge.  I honestly wasn’t sure I would make it, that I could come up with 31 days of things to say.  I’ve written most days on the actual day, aside from a couple of days I knew I would be out of town/not at the computer. I’ve learned a lot about myself, had a lot of great conversations with friends who read my blog and one crazy day a re-tweet brought 1500 readers to my blog. 

I wish I could count how many times I’ve heard the song “Unfolding” by Steven Curtis Chapman this month, it seems to be on the radio over and over when I’m in my car, and comes on just when I feel a hint of doubt, a little bit down, some sort of why question, what-ifs playing through my head…a lot goes on in a month’s time. 

Lay your head down tonight
Take a rest from the fight
Don’t try to figure it out
Just listen to what I’m whispering to your heart
‘Cause I know this is not
Anything like you thought
The story of your life was gonna be
And it feels like the end has started closing in on you
But it’s just not true
There’s so much of the story that’s still yet to unfold

And this is going to be a glorious unfolding
Just you wait and see and you will be amazed
You’ve just got to believe the story is so far from over
So hold on to every promise God has made to us
And watch this glorious unfolding

God’s plan from the start
For this world and your heart
Has been to show His glory and His grace
Forever revealing the depth and the beauty of
His unfailing Love
And the story has only begun

I am reminded, this is only part of my story, it has only begun, God has a plan for me, there’s so much that is yet to unfold. 
And, it will be a glorious unfolding
I will be amazed
I am going to just wait and see
I have to believe
To hold on to every promise.
