Dear friend, I don’t know what you’re struggling with today.
I don’t know what battles you’re fighting or what sort of weight you’re carrying. I don’t know what news you’ve received or what valleys you’re slogging through. This world feels heavy sometimes. You may be battle-weary and bloodied from the fight. But take hope, sweet friend. Because God’s not done.
The pages of our lives don’t always read the way we wanted them to. Our life stories are significantly messier, more scarred, and more tearstained than we’d like. And this year, it may feel like you’re sinking — struggling to keep your head above the waves.
But in this midst of this current season — in the disappointment and the rejection, the searing pain and the devastation, the loneliness and the brokenness — I pray for that flickering ember of hope within.
The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?Psalm 27:1 (NIV)
Because the Author is not finished yet.
And there is so more to this story than what we currently see.
The ending has already been written. The victory has already been won. And these wounds that we’re carrying today? These aches and pains and fear and disappointments? This is not how the story ends.
So take heart, dear friend, because God’s not done with your story.
And He’s not done with you.
