Stories are Key to Missional Living

I have heard this song several times over the last few days and believe its a powerful statement.

Here's the Lyrics to The Next Thing You Know.

I remember when I was thirteen I saw a picture on my T.V. screen The Reverend Billy Graham and the people singing "Just As I Am" And it felt like You were talking to me And the whole world seemed to fade away Until I heard my mother say "Son, are you okay? Do you wanna pray?" And that became the hour I first believed

Chorus Next thing you know I'm high and flyin' Next thing you know My heart is in your hands Next thing you know There's no denyin' Next thing you know I'm a brand new man

Well, I wish I could say I always stayed right there And I did until my freshman year But the world was pulling me a long way from thirteen And you were calling but I didn't hear Still I knew there was something more So, one day my knees hit the dorm room floor I said, "If you're there, and if you really care, Come and talk to me like I was thirteen."

Got a picture in my head today of how heaven might look someday I see the people there, so I pull up a chair And their stories, they blow me away 'Cause I can see it on every face The evidence of grace And as I listen it occurs to me Everybody's got their own thirteen

So, what's your story about His glory? You gotta find your place in the history of grace Yeah, what's your story about His glory? Come on and find your place

The power of a story. It's that power (along with the Holy Spirit's) that will help us impact the lives who are around us.


what's your story about His glory? Let me know!
