In Others’ Words: The End and the Beginning
If we can search and find the beginning hidden in the ending … well then, the ending isn’t quite so painful.
I’m facing an ending right now — an “everything is finished” kind of moment. God was gracious enough to give me a head’s up about it months ago, so I wasn’t caught off guard by it. But still, there is an ending here. And there is some sadness in writing “The End” on this chapter of my life.
But I also know this is a beginning, too. Do I know exactly what this new adventure looks like? No. But I know I’m starting something new — something that I want to do. And so, in the midst of the end I’m already anticipating the next thing God has waiting for me … and I’m waiting on Him to say, “This is where we start.”
Until then, I wait. I acknowledge the end even as I set my sights on what is up ahead. It’s an interesting place to be, one brimming with things finished … and things waiting to be accomplished.
In Your Words: Where are you? Are you at a “beginning” moment or a “finished” moment? What makes the moment manageable?
