Stories...

I love stories...life stories. My grandfather was a quiet man who rarely engaged in a conversation with me, but I had heard from my mom and my grandmother that he had lived an interesting life. I wanted to hear his stories, but he wasn't a story telling man. Because I needed to write a story for school,  I asked him if I could interview him. He agreed, and then he answered my questions. I loved hearing him tell his stories of WW11. He was my hero, but my grandfather didn't feel like a hero. Sometimes it's hard to see the good in our story; sometimes it's hard to see God working in and through our story. Rahab's story is told in Joshua 2, and even though it isn't a pretty story, it's a story that is in God's Word. God uses us even though we are imperfect, fearful, and sinful. Rahab believed in God's power and plan, and she asked to be saved. She asked, and God answered her request. Rahab is in the family line of Christ. Perfect story, no, but a great story of God's love and sovereignty. God has a plan for our story too.
