What is an initiation story?
An initiation story is a fiction in which the protagonist (the most important character in the work) undergoes an experience that is life-changing, and usually that character is a young person who gains a measure of maturity from the experience.

Answer . Initiating means starting. The sense of the word would often apply in a work setting, and a person who is an "initiator" would be the one who can start projects independently, without waiting to be told by superiors.

Mark 5:25-34 a woman with a 'flow of blood' for 12 years, reached out to Jesus in her attempts to be healed. This took courage and initiative, because it actually broke one of the sanitary restrictions in the Mosaic Law, but because she had such strong faith in Jesus, he healed her.(Leviticus 15:19…-28) Mark 10:46-52 is the account of the blind beggar who desperately wanted to be healed. When he called out to Jesus, many people told him to be quiet, but he took the initiative and kept it up until Jesus heard him, and he WAS healed. (1Samuel 25:2-35) When Nabal refused to repay David's protective forces with deserved provisions, the initiative and tact of Nabal's wife, "Abigail the Carmelitess," served to restrain David from bloodguilt. ( John 5:19 ) Therefore, in answer, Jesus went on to say to them: "Most truly I say to YOU, The Son cannot do a single thing of his own initiative, but only what he beholds the Father doing. For whatever things that One does, these things the Son also does in like manner. (John 7:28) "Therefore Jesus cried out as he was teaching in the temple and said: "YOU both know me and know where I am from. Also, I have not come of my own initiative , but he that sent me is real, and YOU do not know him. " ( John 10:17-18 ) This is why the Father loves me, because I surrender my soul, in order that I may receive it again. No man has taken it away from me, but I surrender it of my own initiative . I have authority to surrender it, and I have authority to receive it again. The commandment on this I received from my Father." Proverbs urge us to take the initiative to do good toward others.

Well the war between good and evil all started when Voldemort graduated from Hogwarts. In his time there he learned of his father, the muggle, leaving his mother who was a pureblood. This prompted him to hate all muggles and their magical children, mudbloods, because of the terrible life he had at t…he orphanage where he grew up. Snape and Lily met when they were children living in the same town and they both could do magic, so they were quick friends. They went to Hogwarts and were sorted into different houses. Because Snape and James Potter hated each other, Snape was very upset when Lily started to date Potter and eventually married him. During his last few years at Hogwarts he became a spy for Voldemort. When Dumbledore needed to find a new Divinations teacher, he was interviewing Sybil Trelawny, who he thought was a freud, when she had an actual vision. The 'prophesy' was overheard by Snape, telling of a child who was born at the end of July who would eventually defeat Voldemort. The child was still a mystery at that point, and it was between Harry Potter and Neville Longbottom who were both children born to Light families. When Voldemort heard the prophesy (only a part of it, because Snape only heard like half) he chose one of the children and went to attack the family, hoping to kill him before he could be killed. Obviously this backfired and that is where the actual story starts. ( Full Answer )

One occurrence is actually in the Bible . You'll find it in Psalm 56:8 . David is a fugitive. He is overwhelmed and distressed. His eyes glistening with tears; he calls upon the kindness and compassion of his God, Jehovah, begging him: "Do put my tears in your skin bottle." This verse assures us… that our Heavenly Father sees not only our trials; -- but also the emotional impact (tears) of those trials. Jehovah God truly understands the pain afflicting his worshipers; and compassionately remembers our tears and suffering; figuratively storing them up in his skin bottle. They are not just tossed aside as insignificant. Skin bottles are used for 'storage'. Even today some desert people use skin bottles. If they're not on their donkeys or camels; you'll find them on the front of all-terrain-vehicles.. ( Full Answer )
