Trouble, trials, and turbulence are our portion while here on Earth. Between the violence, the economic woes, and moral issues-troubles have no problem finding us. No matter how much we pray and plead, sorrow is inevitable. That is not the end result, however, as children of the Lord, we have a promise that awaits us at the end of the turbulent road. Christ tells us so, let’s look to the Lord:
The end is that you will overcome because Christ overcame it all! Trouble may be the portion but victory is the promise! Friends, this world is just full of sorrowful stories. Turn on the news, open up the internet-you will find all the troubles and ills of the world there.
But open up your Bible! There you will find the happy ending you dream of-Jesus Christ overcame the world’s ills. The end is that you will overcome too! There is a home in Heaven awaiting those who profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Our Savior achievements is our promise! Our happy ending isn’t found in retiring from a job in 30 years, it isn’t found in marrying the love of our life or becoming debt-free, our joy is in Christ alone. Christ is more than our happy ending-He is our joy-filled ending!
Sisters, we cannot let Disney or the latest romantic comedy shape our desired happy endings. There are cute and entertaining but they are not endgame. Victory is better than any movie that Disney can make! The approval of the Father is better than any story we will read! Sisters, we will cry and we will grieve in the world but because of Christ-we will win! Victorious living is our promise!
Accept Christ, and you too, can live happily ever after…
Peace and Blessings
