Last week, I wrote about healing the heartache of broken relationship without realizing that we were on the threshold of saying adieu to an icon.
Thousands of tribute articles will be written this week for Whitney Houston. This is not a tribute. It’s a question.
What is Your Story? What Is Your Song?
I’m listening to this song on replay as I write this post. (Click here if you can’t view the video)
An old gospel anthem says: “This is my story and this is my song…”
So I ask you what is your story? What is your song?
You are telling it every day. You are singing it in each and every moment.
You are telling your story and singing your song in every moment Tweet
It is easy to look at someone like Whitney Houston, or any of our other idols and believe that they are different from us.
God is love. Pure creative source. Pure love gives. Love gives us those we idolize, love and respect as our heroes. When you remember the gift of Whitney Houston, remember that you–like she–are a gift no less treasured.
Remember the gift of Whitney Houston. In the same thought,
remember you are a gift no less-treasured! Tweet
Tell Your Story. Sing Your Song!
Only you can determine what your story will be. Sometimes it requires a new narrative. Only you alone can change your story.
Remember that it takes a simple decision to change the story of your life. It requires great courage. It requires the “Greatest Love of All”. That may be the most difficult part of it all.
Can you love yourself enough to have the courage to be who you were created to be?

It’s Up to You
I have chosen a different story for myself. What about you?
What is the story you’re telling? What is your song?
How will you clarify your story?
How will you begin telling a true story about yourself today? It lies within your grasp!
