STORYTELLER

After weeks MIA, I feel like telling a story but I won’t, lol. I will be telling a different one. I can imagine the itchy eyes and ears right now.
Your life itself is a story you’re telling and when I came to this intriguing understanding, it made sense why I love the song by Morgan Harper Nichols.
Just like a book , your life has different chapters, some very interesting and you probably don’t want it to end, others not so good and you just want to flip over to read the next chapter or just stop reading the book.
I love this song because it emphasises that it doesn’t matter the chapter, verse or paragraph, all you need is the author’s guide through the very story you’re telling.

STORYTELLER BY MORGAN HARPER NICHOLS
On a sunday evening, I’m looking back over all the years and where I’ve been
Looking at old photographs, I’m remembering , you were right there
And you’ve been ever since
With every page that turns, I see your faithfulness
Oh the mountain where I climbed, the valley where I fell
You were there all along, that’s the story I’ll tell
You brought the pieces together, made me this story teller
Now I know it is well, it is well
That’s the story I’ll tell

There were some nights that felt like they would last forever
But you kept me breathing
You were with me right then
And all that you have done for me, I could never hold it in
So here’s to me telling this story
Over and over again
Oh the mountain where I climbed, the valley where I fell
You were there all along
That’s the story I’ll tell
You brought the pieces together, made me this storyteller
Now I know it is well, it is well
That’s the story I’ll tell

You hold the broken
You hear my every cry, every cry
My eyes are open
I know that it is well, it is well

That’s the story I’ll tell
For years and years and years I’ll tell
That’s the story I’ll tell

Stories always remind me about the famous “we are pencils in the hand of the creator” and I think that is self explanatory.
