No Matter What Your Story Holds, You Still Have Hope and a Future

You are living a story today. A story crafted and told by the Author of heaven. The star-scatterer. The mountain-mover. The water-walker.

In the day-to-day, it doesn’t feel like a story. It feels like dishes in the sink. Reports on the desk. Another mile behind the steering wheel of the car. There is so much we do not know, that we will not know, but we can be certain of this: the Author is good and we are loved.

There is a God at work who has always been speaking, always been creating beauty out of the broken. “Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written” (John 21:25).

Jesus is still doing many other things. He is not done with history. He is not finished with the part of it that is our story either. Whatever scene we find ourselves in today, it is not the final page. Hold on, there is a turning coming. There is more than this, more than here and now. We have not yet seen the there and then.

We are overcomers. We are warriors. We are a force to be reckoned with in this world. And whatever the future brings, our God is still holding the pen. He is the only one who gets to write “The End.”

No matter what your story holds, you still have hope and a future.

God, You are the Author of our lives. You are the One who speaks truth to our hearts. When the lies get loud, we choose to listen to You. Tell us who we are, remind us of what’s true. Help us to tell each other too. We want our lives to be stories that bring You glory. Amen.

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. Prov. 19:21
