“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29:11, NKJV.

“Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace” Psalms 37:37

God has promised you a bright future. He’s promised you a peaceful end. It doesn’t matter how your story began, you can trust that it will not end the same way. He has promised that everything will work together for your good because you love Him and are called according to his purpose (see Romans 8:28). Your life will not end the same way it began.

Are you listening?

Your life may have began in darkness, but it will end bright and victorious. It may have began in sin and filth, but it will end in beauty and glory. God specializes in turning things around as we keep walking. We may not know how He does it, but somewhere along the way, He goes to working in our lives, in our hearts, and in the hearts of those around us, and before we know it things have changed and shifted in our favor.

Are you listening?

Don’t worry about how you started out in your journey. Don’t worry about how God is going to do it for you. Don’t feel ashamed about your beginning. Trust in God’s divine ability to change our course. Just go about your day to day life while He works. You will look up and see. You will be pleasantly surprised at how He has done it again.

Prayer. Yes, Lord. I hear you and I receive these special words right into my heart. Thank you for blessing me with a promise. No matter how I started, you will bless my ending. My day will end blessed. My story will end blessed. My life will end blessed and victorious. You have the final say in my life. You are sovereign. Help me go about my day trusting in you to work everything out for my good. I love you, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
