The truth of the matter

It doesn't matter if nobody believes in you, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. It doesn't matter if some people believe in you, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. It doesn't matter if everybody believes in you, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. People change and emotions are fickle. The people who celebrate you today might be the same ones that will carry pitch forks and attempt to crucify you tomorrow. You are the protagonist of your story. It doesn't matter how slowly the character of your story develops, its not over yet as you are still evolving. Remember, the plot is gently unfolding and so is the character development. You say there is too much drama in the story, yes dearie, it makes the book a better read and the movie a better watch. The twists and themes are necessary to weave a dramatic climax. If there were no suspense in a movie, then its not worth the watch. The characters in a story do not query the author except in George of the the jungle and see what happened to the animals that did(lol...Thank God we have a loving not a vindictive saviour) . Believe in yourself and the judgement of the author. HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING You may not be the gun slinger in an action movie or yours might not even be a comedy but a small low budget classic series...its a story anyway and whatever the role you are created to play, play it well. Moreover every creative genre has its audience so you are relevant. ONLY YOU CAN PLAY YOU IN THIS STORY. I've realised that people that listen to the director of a movie come out shining. The director has a vision in his head and will help the character portray his/her best and not mislead. Stephen was a character in a big budget movie but he had a small role; he was chosen along with six others to oversee the daily distribution of food. He could have complained that the job was degrading given his CV but he understood that his little role was necessary in the bigger picture. From a small audience of widows and motley crew of believers he evolved into speaking before the most learned people in the land and got a standing ovation from Jesus at his death " But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed steadily into heaven and saw the glory of God, and he saw Jesus standing in the place of honor at God’s right hand" Acts 7:55. I've survived some situations that I thought I could never do. Truth be told some left me scared but looking back now, those situation have only been stepping stones for my growth. The scars are just gentle reminders that I AM A SURVIVOR So you see, it doesn't matter how many times you've erred and made wrong choices, God is still in the business of forgiveness and restoration. The truth of the matter is that you matter to God and you have a role in this story. Now let's give it another go. SCENE 75, ACT 12, ACTION!!!
