Life Over

Life Over


When a broken arm put an end to my driving for several months, I felt that life as I knew it was over.

I was wrong, of course. Life went on in a new direction, highly supported by others who drove me where I needed to go.

Our life's road is not ended when things change, but it may be detoured in one direction or another.

I admit that it may be the end of the road as we know it, but that only allows room for more possibilities.

Think about the caterpillar. It surely feels that life as it knows it is over, but then it blossoms into something more.

Friends, grab onto God's new direction with everything you have in you, for there, real life is. "What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly." Richard Bach

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us." Helen Keller

"Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us." (Romans 5:3-5NIV)

Prayer: Lord, help us not to give up on our lives, because You are in charge, and You never give up on us! Amen.
