He knows the end of the story

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways" saith the Lord "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9

We see cancer. We see chemotherapy. We see hospital stays. We see side effects. We see expenses. We see exhaustion. We see a lonely road at times. We see where our life is right now...

But God sees the end of the story.

He sees healing. He sees recovery. He sees us having a more intimate relationship with Him. He sees a dedication to the things of God. He sees Malachi and Hannah developing a level of trust in God even at their young age. He sees open doors. He sees restoration of what was lost.

He sees the end of the story because He wrote it.

This has not been an easy road we are traveling on. It has not been a road we chose to take. It has been filled with tears and exhaustion.

But even during the times when we were weak with exhaustion, we could feel God's peace and His strength. Even during the times when we felt alone, we could feel God's hand uplifting us. Even when we were faced with uncertainty we had confidence in the One who knows the end of the story.

We know God will get the glory. We know His light will shine bright. We may not know the purpose but we know God has a plan. We may understand why this is something we have to endure, but we know that God is in control.

And we can remain standing because we know the Author of our life. We know the One who holds the pen. We know the One writes our story. And even though it is hard. And even though tears have fallen, we will continue to let God write our story. We will not take the pen out of His hand. We will not turn our back on God.

May I encourage someone today:

You may see yourself single.
You may see infertility
You may see financial struggling
You may see a shattered dream
You may see a sickness

But God sees the end of the story.
He sees marriage
He sees children
He sees financial stability
He sees open doors
He sees healing

It may not come tomorrow, but continue to let God write your story. Don't take the pen out of His hand. Don't try to edit what He is writing. Trust in God, even when it gets difficult.
