Have you ever been so engrossed in a book that you didn’t hear someone calling your name?
What is that makes a good story so gripping? The plot may be twisty and interesting, but I think it is something deeper that holds us transfixed by an inspiring story.
When the heroine falters, we see our fears. When she weeps, we recognize the pain. We hope for a happy ending because that is what we want for ourselves.
Stories help us understand our own journey.
God made us to need stories. Jesus told many stories when He walked on earth. He knows we usually understand deep truths better when framed in story. And He knows that we very often project ourselves into the middle of a tale.
This month we will be sharing stories of godly women who have lived inspiring lives. We share them to encourage you in your own walk of faith.
Every single one of us is a sinner, including these faithful daughters. Because she recognized her own sin and her dependence on God, each of these godly women was able to allow Him to work powerfully through her life.
These are stories worth pondering… lives that can inspire each of us to walk more fully dependent on the Lover of our Souls.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8
