My two daughters are budding script writers.
Whenever I tell them a bedtime story and they anticipate a sad ending to it, they intervene and finish the story themselves. They make sure that I always end my story with the phrase: “And they lived happily ever after…”.
I thank the Lord today because of God’s promise that in our Christian life, we will always have a happy ending.
Hard to believe, eh?
Especially when you are going through financial difficulties and the tunnel seems long and dark…
When the diagnosis isn’t very promising and the body slowly weakens as the days go by…
When the pain of losing your loved one isn’t ceasing and the tears aren’t drying up…
When nights are long and the days seem night…
Yes, sometimes, when you’re in the midst of challenging times, it is quite difficult, even impossible, to think of a happy ending.
But in today’s scripture readings, God paints to us a picture of abundance (Isaiah 65:17-21) and of prosperity that will turn our mourning into dancing (Psalm 30).
This is my conviction: Every person who trusts in the Lord will never be put to shame.
Sure, God may not answer your prayers the way you expect Him to. But in the end, He will definitely answer your prayers in a way that is best for you.
Today, I invite you to trust again, to believe, and to hold on. God promises a happy ending for you. And you don’t need to be a script writer to do that for Him. He promises. He fulfills. A happy ending for you is for certain!
