May 29 Home Communicator – Reflecting on Telling the Story of God’s Faithfulness

The school year is almost complete. What a wonderful year it has been! Every day was filled with learning in many areas – academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. In addition, we had a number of special chapels and events that focused on and celebrated God’s faithfulness – His faithfulness in the past, in the present, and His promised faithfulness in the future.

We have had many opportunities to tell the story of His faithfulness to others. We have learned that living our lives and interacting with others tells His story. We are all storytellers no matter what age or what is happening in our lives. One of my favorite songs that highlights this for me is ‘Storyteller’ by Morgan Harper Nichols. The words so poignantly express our role as storytellers of God’s faithfulness in our lives. If you have not heard this song, I highly recommend you listen to it. Here are the lyrics:

On a Sunday evening

I’m looking back

Over all the year

And where I’ve been

Looking at old photographs

I’m remembering

You were right there

And You have been ever since

With every page that turns

I see Your faithfulness

The mountain where I climbed

The Valley where I fell

You were there all along

That’s the story I’ll tell

You brought the pieces together

Made me this storyteller

Now I know it is well, it is well

That’s the story I’ll tell

There were nights that felt like

They would last forever

But You kept me breathing

You were with me right then

And all that You have done for me

I could never hold it in

So here’s to me telling this story

Over and over again

So our journey of telling THE story is not finished because God’s faithfulness is endless. Continue to be His storyteller remembering that with every page that turns you will see and experience His faithfulness.
