I read this today and thought it would be neat to share, especially with those who enjoy writing.
Our lives are like plotlines in a novel, with God as the Author. In literary terms, I have heard it said that there is no such thing as a Christian tragedy because, though tragic things may happen to the Protagonist, the Christian always ends up in the arm of God.
Death is not the last word. Disaster only brings the Christian closer to God. Nasty surprises or twist and turns of plot do not deter us from the path we tread. Because of the cross, we may march through earthly jungles, deserts, gardens, cities, but we are on a heavenly trek. No matter what our journeys lead us through, we always end up in God. From where we stand now, our future may look dreadful, exciting, boring, but we may rest assured that we are in better hands than our own if we simply give our future to Christ.
