"Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's Fingers." - Hans Christian Anderson
I found this quote on Michaela's blog and was thinking how true it is!
How are our lives like fairy tales? You may be saying: "Wait a minute! My life isn't anything like a fairy tale! You don't know what kind of hard situations I've had to face!"
You're right, I don't know your situation, but God does! And fairy tales aren't all wonderful all the time either. Think about some of those stories. There are some bad things that happen to seemingly good people. But fairy tales all have happy endings.
The point is that there is a light, a hope in our lives, a "happy ending" for those who have put their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus! For those of us who are following God He is the great Author of our story and He already has a happy ending planned out for His children!
God's Word says:
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will direct your paths." - Proverbs 3:5-6
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." - Romans 8:28
I found this little reminder encouraging and hope you do too! May you be blessed as you seek to serve your King!
Very Truly Your's
