Discover YOUR Role in God's Story with The Story Devotional {+ A Fantastic Coupon Deal!}

A huge thank you to Family Christian for sponsoring today's post. All thoughts are my own.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.- Jeremiah 29:11

If you've been around A Modern Day Fairy Tale for long, you know that this is a verse that I share frequently, a verse that holds a lot of meaning to myself for my family. It is a verse I use to remind myself that everything that happens in our lives- the good and the bad- are all part of God's plan, of His bigger story. It is something I believe fully with my whole heart.

Still, even believing so it can be tough to determine what exactly what plan really is. What does God want from each of us? What is his plan for MY life? Where do I fit into His story? These are big questions. The Story Devotional digs into the Word to help you discover just that. Take a look:



See your life and purpose in a whole new light as part of God s epic story with this beautiful leather-look devotional. Through 365 daily Scripture readings arranged chronologically, plus bite-sized reflections and a daily takeaway, this unique devotional illuminates how God has been weaving his plan throughout history. Each day, you ll be blessed with a reminder of God's unrelenting love and pursuit of his people. 

The Story Devotional is also wonderful companion to The Story. 

Sounds pretty wonderful doesn't it? As is stated, this is a great companion to The Story- a wonderful Bible translation that take the Bible from many separate books telling of the same story to one continuous story- but is certainly a great devotional all by itself as well. It is a great read for anyone looking to grow their relationship with God and discover His purpose for their life.

  1. Matthew 6:25-34English Standard Version (ESV)

    Do Not Be Anxious
    25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?[a] 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

    34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

  2. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy is coming in the morning.

    It was for my peace that I had intense bitterness...but You have loved back my life from the pit of corruption and despair. You have put all my sins behind Your back. Amen. Thank you, Lord!!

  4. In all honesty, I don't have a favorite verse as there are so many that speak to me. However Stefanie Hein's choice is high on my list as well. This passage got me through many rough times.

    Matthew 6:25-28 (NIV)

    6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

    27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

    28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
