Well, it’s been seven days since we first received our “inciting incident,” or maybe you just received yours today. How is it going? As one friend and member said to me, “This is more difficult than I expected, but so exciting!” Have you had similar feelings?
I believe that this Living A Better Story Experience is, indeed, more difficult than we might expect. It works on us, doesn’t it? That’s what inciting incidents do—they challenge us, push us, nudge us to a new and different way. They offer us the beginning of a better story. But at first it can be difficult because we don’t know what to do, which way to go, how to respond.
I’ve been thinking about it and this thought entered my mind: Difficult is not a bad thing. It’s what we do with the “difficult.” Do we ignore it, or give up on it? Or do we call on God to help us and encourage us and push us forward?
Yes, it can be difficult, but it’s also exciting. A Better Story awaits!
