The canvas of my submitted heart

As God writes His-story on me it seems to go much farther back then my small existence. I liken it to the pages we write upon. Our story did not start as the pages started to turn.

As I narrate the words of your pages the readers will be surprised and overwhelmed by your Makers faithful history.
