Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Storytelling is a great gift and an important routine. I'm not just referring to reading a storybook to a little child, or Garrison Keillor telling a Tale from Lake Wobegon, but...

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O most High.
- Psalm 9:1,2 TNIV
The Psalmist sings of the importance of storytelling also. To "tell of all your wonderful deeds" is to bear witness to others what God is doing, but it also brings to mind and heart in the "teller" what God is doing.

What if you made it a point to take a moment every day to think "This is what I see God doing in my life," and maybe another, "This is what I'd like to see God doing." In doing so, you are "telling."
