Do you like to read fiction? Usually in a book, a twist occurs or something dramatic happens to main character. As a result, there may be moments when you wonder “what’s going to happen to the main character now?” So, you continue to read to find out how the story ends.
In our lives, we experience the same thing. Someone passes, we get bad news the doctor, job loss occurs, a spouse asks for a divorce, children begin to rebel, etc. There are a variety of twists and turns that can and will happen in this life. We begin to experience doubt and discouragement and wonder, “where is God? Does He see and know about what I’m going through?”
Well… He does. And if we want to see how things turn out, then we must hold on to our faith, continue to trust God, and finish our story. We never know how things are going to turn out in the end, and we will never find out if we give up in the middle of our story.
