When I came home from work today, I got down on my knees and prayed. My heart was feeling heavy for others whose trials I know are great. Then I curled up in bed and finished reading the last chapter of “The Magnolia Story.” It’s a book by Chip and Joanna Gaines, the husband and wife duo of the show Fixer Upper. I want to share with you the final paragraph from this book.
“Don’t quit, and don’t give up. The reward is just around the corner. And in times of doubt and in times of joy, listen for that still, small voice. Know that God has been there from the beginning – and He will be there until the end,” (page 182).
Wow. Just moments after offering a prayer expressing to God the heaviness of my heart, I stumbled across this gem. I am grateful for men and women of faith, like Chip and Joanna Gaines, who express their belief that God is always in the journey with us and will be with us until the end.
I too believe that God is always there. Even (and maybe especially) in those times when things feel dark and hearts feel heavy. We must keep believing, keep dreaming, and keep waiting for His hand to be revealed.
