As it turns out, George Eliot is actually Mary Anne Evans — a female novelist who wrote under a male pseudonym.
“George” passed away in 1880 but she is still known today because she knew how to write a good story.
What about you?
Your life is a subplot in the greatest story that’s ever been told — the story of redemption. Redemption is about Jesus Christ but you play an important supporting role.
Here’s the good news: you get to write your own lines!
The basic plot, setting, and main characters are outside of your control but you have great creative freedom in determining the role you’ll play within the larger story of redemption.
You can’t change what’s already happened – filming has wrapped on that part of your life. But since you’re still breathing, the story isn’t over yet!
If you want to make 2010 count, here’s Step 4: Assess the storyline. Think of yourself as a character in a movie: Where did you come from? Where are you now? Where are you headed? If you don’t like the direction your storyline is taking, it’s not too late to edit the script.
As George Eliot writes, “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
