I forget that sometimes. When t’m in the dark passages of my story, I forget that the end has already been written. I forget that God has the final say on the final page.
It’s like re-reading a favorite book. You get to the point where the outlook is bleakest and the heroes are outnumbered. You think that there’s no way they can ever hope to win. Then you remember the end. You remember that the story doesn’t end in ashes and defeat.
Your story has a happy ending if you have said yes to God’s story. Your pain won’t have the final word. Neither will your mistakes, your poor choices, your past, your wounds, your scars. Jesus and Jesus alone has the final word in your life.
