Did you know your story is unique? The story God has written
for you is like no other. No one else has your story. That is how
great God is. He has given every man and woman a story and
that story is not the same. Our stories are all unique. That
blows my mind.
I posted these thoughts on my Facebook page but I want to go
deeper. It’s important to know your story is unique.
Without that understanding you will live your life comparing
yourself to others. God never meant us to live someone
else’s life. I will say that again,
God never meant us to live someone else’s life!
No one else has your story. Your story is unique.
God is not lazy. He never copies and pastes stories.
And that’s why you have to very careful when judging others.
Everyone is on a journey.
Let’s look at the story of Hannah and Peninnah.
” When the day came that Elkanah sacrificed, he would give to
Peninnah his wife and all her sons and daughters portions [of the
But to Hannah he gave a double portion, for he loved Hannah,
but the Lord had given her no children.
[This embarrassed and grieved Hannah] and her rival provoked
her greatly to vex her, because the Lord had left her childless.”
1 Samuel 1:4-6
Hannah was on a journey. At this point her story had
only just begun but Peninnah didn’t understand that. She didn’t
understand God had a different story for everyone. As hard
as it was to understand and accept God had written a unique
story for Hannah.
Peninnah came in at a critical part of Hannah’s story thinking it
was the WHOLE story. How wrong she was.
God had something amazing in store for Hannah.
Don’t despise where you are at this moment in time. God is
the One who has written your story and He is so faithful!!
Please remember that your story is original. No one else
has a story like yours. There is no need to compare your story.
Run YOUR race and not the next person’s.
Let’s encourage each other in this friends.
God bless you

This is so good Rolain! It’s so easy to want to have a different story than the one you have or be at a different place in your story, but it’s important to remember that God is in control and the unique story and plan He has for each one of us is hand-tailored specifically for us and the purpose He wants us to fulfill. His way and plan is always best even when we don’t understand it.
Thank you Anna.
You are so right, His way and plan is always best even if we don’t understand it.
We need to trust He has written the best story for our lives and He alone is faithful to bring it to pass.
