The Journey to Change

How “The Story I Tell” by Micah Tyler Inspires Hope

In a quiet conversation with Family Life Radio, Micah Tyler, a beacon of hope and faith through his music, shared insights into his journey, his music, and the profound impact of his song, “The Story I Tell”.

Micah’s words paint a picture of transformation, redemption, and the power of the story of those unnamed in the Gospel narratives.

A Song Close to the Heart

When asked where newcomers should begin with his music, Micah didn’t hesitate, “So a song that I’m very proud of, that’s not a radio single or anything like that… It’s called ‘The Story I Tell’.” Micah fondly describes the track as “super bluesy,” “simple musically,” yet rich in vocal edge, allowing him to “paint with all the different colors.”

Unveiling Gospel Narratives

The brilliance of song lies in its focus on the unnamed individuals in the Gospels—those whose lives were transformed by encounters with Jesus. Micah shared, “It’s a song about how there’s 27 times in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John that someone’s story is told about their life-changing encounter. But in all those stories, one little detail gets left out, and it’s their names.”

By highlighting the unnamed, Micah invites you to see yourself in these stories of transformation and redemption.

Beyond Past Labels

Micah’s passion for this song shines as he discusses its message of identity and transformation. “We call them ‘the prodigal;’ ‘we call them the woman at the well,’ ‘the lepers,’ the thief on the cross.’ We call them all the things they used to be, not what they became.”

Through these words, Micah challenges you to:

Look beyond your past, to the transformative power of Christ’s love that redefines who you really are.

The Song I Play

“The Story I Tell” holds a special place in Micah’s journey, predating his record deal and showcasing his raw passion for storytelling through music. “That was a song that I was passionate about. And I play that song the most of any song in my entire life,” Micah shares, highlighting the personal connection and the significance of this song in his life and career.

This song is an invitation to experience the transformative power of faith, to see yourself in the stories of those unnamed individuals in the Gospels who met Jesus and were forever changed. It’s powerful reminder that your past does not define you; through Christ, you are invited into a story of redemption and hope.
