Jesus had caused the lame to walk, the deaf to hear, and the mute to speak. He had taught with authority unlike any teachers of the day and performed miracles that astounded all who witnessed them.
Yet the Savior of the world was hung on a cross, deserted by His followers, and then buried in a tomb.
But there’s more to the story. Three days later, a resurrection took place. Now, the head that was crowned with thorns is crowned with glory.
Let this perspective sink into your heart today…THERE’S MORE TO YOUR STORY.
No matter the past disappointment, present difficulty, or discouraging forecast: Your story is still being written… and the hand of God is holding the pen.
But the fact that God is writing the story doesn’t mean you don’t have a part to play. You need to stand on His word, hold onto your faith, let God be your source and remember, what you’ve been through may be difficult, but God will work it out for your good. Don’t give up now. There is more to your story.
“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18)
The scene you’re in today might be disappointing, but you don’t have to let it be the defining factor of your story. God has more in store for you and your next chapter is being written. Continue to stand in faith and watch God’s incredible story for you unfold into something amazing!
