“We can see God in our stories. Which is why we’re called to be storytellers. To tell others the stories of our lives—about the things we’ve endured and survived, the areas where we’ve failed and succeeded, and the times we’ve questioned and doubted. Because in all of these stories, others can see what God has done for us. And we can see it too.”
Caryn Rivadeneira, Known and Loved: 52 Devotions from the Psalms
