Life is a Story

book1

Have you ever tried to figure out why things happen? What the bigger picture is? Whats the ending going to be like?

Life is like a story, a story that began so long ago. We are in the middle. We have ideas of what the ending looks like, but we will never really know until we get there.

It’s like opening a book in the middle and hoping to understand the whole story. We can’t do this.

But we know how the story started, this is what the Bible is for. It tells us all about the beginning, it also helps us understand the present, and gives us hope for the future.

God is the author of life, he knows what’s on the next page before we get there. We just need to trust Him a bit more instead of trying to write our own story. He has the perfect ending for us.

How Far Would We Go?

The Bible is filled with people who were obedient and followed God to the end. Some suffered greatly and were even killed for their faith.

Many people today are still being persecuted because they love Jesus.

I have often wondered what I would do if I was persecuted for my faith. How would I react? How far would I go for God?

Will stand strong and be bold? Or would I turn and run as soon as things get tough?

I don’t know what I would do if I was in that situation, But I do know that I should be making the most of the time I have now. I should be spending more time reading and immersing myself in God’s Word, growing my faith and trust in Him.

I can’t know what will happen in the future, but I know what I need to do now to be prepared for what ever storms that will come my way.
