This is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long;
this is my story, this is my song,
praising my Savior all the day long.
“Blessed Assurance”, Fanny Crosby
God is the ultimate artist storyteller. This is especially true in the way He paints life stories: distinctive, yet blurred; singular, yet in unison.
Sometimes He paints with brilliant, vivid, momentous events, primary color oils on a stark white canvas.
Sometimes He paints in subtle hues, watercolors blending, shadowy and vague.
Most often, He uses both oils and watercolors, primaries and pastels, together on immense sheets of art paper. He slowly blends them together, striking lines and hazy splotches, a mysterious mingling of everyone’s stories. My story and your story and others’ stories all together – oils and pastels, joys and sorrows, triumphs and losses – shared.
He creates what He alone can bring to life, individuals contributing to this grand work of art: the one enormous living canvas of humanity.
His art, our stories, continuing on . . .
