"You can call it God or a conscience, or you can dismiss it as that intuitive knowing we all have as human beings, as living storytellers; but there is a knowing I feel that guides me toward better stories, toward being a better character. I believe there is a writer outside ourselves, plotting a better story for us, interacting with us, even, and whispering a better story into our consciousness." -A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, Don Miller, page 86I don't think it's an accident that I started reading this book right as I started writing my own. Miller's words about story, character, seeing oneself as a storyteller, and how these things relate to faith stretch me personally and creatively.
How do we live as storytellers? How do we fight the lie that our lives are boring, uninteresting, just day-to-day getting by? Maybe you didn't save the world today but I'm sure we can all point to some interaction or occurrence that's worth noting.
I need to view myself as a living storyteller, not because of my craft but because of who God has created me to be. There is beauty in the changing. I may not yet know what God is leading me toward but it's coming and I don't want to miss out on the in between.
