He wrote us into His story

"What I'm saying is I think life is staggering and we're just used to it. We all are like spoiled children no longer impressed with the gifts we're given--it’s just another sunset, just another rainstorm moving over the mountain, just another child being born, just another funeral." … "If I have a hope, it's that God sat over the dark nothing and wrote you and me, specifically, into the story, and put us in with the sunset and the rainstorm as though to say, Enjoy your place in my story. The beauty of it means you matter, and you can create within it even as I have created you."

--Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years.
