Your Story

Story Every one of us has a story to tell.

Your life is your story. Your story is your life.

Like a story, your life has a beginning, a middle, and an ending. There is a theme, characters, subplots (work, family, health, happiness, friendship), trajectory, and tone.

 What kind of story is your life?

  • A comedy?
  • A drama?
  • A thriller (horror) movie?
  • A romance or a love story?
  • An action movie?
  • A fairy tale?

In reality, each of our life stories is an EPIC. It’s a long journey with many scenes, experiences, twists and turns, characters, and smaller individual story lines.

I wonder what is the ‘theme’ of your life? Yes, life has many twists and turns, as well as highs and lows, many of them beyond our control BUT you can choose what the theme of your life is going to be. You are not a victim to your circumstances or to what other people say or do. You can choose how you respond to what comes your way. Don’t make worry, fear, anger, or bitterness the theme of your story. Why not choose joy?

Your Story – think about it.


Thank you Mark for this encouraging reminder. How true Mark. > life has many twists and turns, as well as highs and lows, many of them beyond our control BUT ... <

The JOY of the LORD is our strength... AND Gratitude can change our attitude and our life forever. Look to Jesus for a better tomorrow with confidence and remember the Lord always.

"When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present....we experience heaven on earth." ~ Sarah Breathnack

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass... it's about learning how to dance in the rain!" ~ MAC

JOY is spelt... Jesus Other You. Hey?

Thanks Mark, and all the members of City life Church.. This is a great and encouraging website.

The topics covered are attuned to the pulse of modern christian living and the struggles we are all facing..

Spirtitual abuse, attitudes about sexuality,Divorce and remarriage of Christians. etc.. are topics I have found relevant...
