I am slowly learning this lesson… “Your Story Is Your Own.” You can read about it here – http://www.prodigalmagazine.com/your-story-is-your-own/.
Here are some of the comments written by other readers:
- Yes, it is hard to let others live their own story when you know how destructive it is…I’ve been on that path. God is good tho and he never gives up, ever.
- Learning to give people the space to live their own stories, then to speak into them with truth and love and grace is hard work.
- “I thought if I could dump scripture over her like a bucket of ice water, she would give up the things that were so clearly harming her.” Christian parents make this same mistake all the time – I know. I’m a Christian parent. We forget that each one’s story is their own. We assume too much responsibility for their souls.
