I Like That Ending

happy ending

Psalm 139:16 (NLT)

16 You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed.

I really like this verse.  It reminds me that God has a plan for my life.  He knew everything about me before I was born.  He knew everything I would do or not do before I ever took my first breath.  He knew how my story would end before my story ever started.  He knew that for each of you too.

That is pretty amazing when you think about it.  So if God loves us more than we can even fathom and he already knows how everything will play out in our lives, it seems really silly to think that God would do anything that would cause us harm in the long-term.  I mean there might be things that happen that cause us hurt and pain in the short-term, but over the long-term we will find that the hurt and pain was necessary to bring us to a new place that we would have never found on our own.  God does all things for our own good to bring us to places that we could not have even imagined.

In difficult times, we need to remind ourselves that nothing is a surprise to the Almighty God.  He’s not up in heaven scratching His head, saying, “Oh, man, he got laid off.  That messed up everything.”  “Oh, she was diagnosed with cancer.  I didn’t expect that to happen.”  “Why was Joseph thrown into a pit?”  “Amy lost her father.  Now what am I going to do?”  No, God knows the end from the beginning.  He has already written every day of our lives in His book.  The good news is that if we will stay in faith, our book will end in victory.

The next time we face an unexpected challenge, let’s remember that it’s no surprise to God.  It may be a surprise to us, but not to Him.  He already has the answer, the provision, the healing that we need.  Our part is to keep standing, keep praying, keep hoping and keep believing that our story isn’t over until our story ends in victory!

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
