On one of my recent podcast writing episodes I talked about this.
If you didn’t know, I have a podcast where I talk to authors and aspiring authors.
I provide tips, advice and encouragement. The podcast is called,
The Writer’s Creative Space.
If you would like to listen to the episode here is the link.
Anyway, as I recorded the episode I realized this was not just a life principle but a
“Where you start is not where you end” is a spiritual principle too.
I am reminded of Rahab. She didn’t have the best start. She was a prostitute and people
saw her in one way. Her narrative for a time was negative. I don’t think anyone saw
greatness in her. But that all changed when some Hebrew spies came to her.
Her life changed forever. Her narrative changed for good.
“By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed
with those who were disobedient.”
Her end was so much better than her beginning. And if you search deeper into her
story you will find she was included in the lineage of Jesus Christ!
What an honor, what an ending.
So you see. where you start is not where you end.
Let me share one more example.
The disciples were ordinary men with no real purpose before Jesus. They were fishermen.
I wouldn’t say being a fisherman was bad but it wasn’t the greatest thing to be.
The disciples were probably overlooked. They probably overlooked themselves!
But look at what happened when Jesus came onto the scene.
Everything changed. Their lives were changed forever.
They became fisher of men and turned the world upside down!
And that’s the other thing I want you to see.
Only Jesus can change the narrative.
Only Jesus can change the ending.
You may be in a place today where you can’t make sense of how your life is going.
You may not understand how God can turn it around but He can and will.
No matter how you have started know that your end will be very different.
Look to Jesus for help.
Trust Him to change the narrative in your life.
Trust Him to change the ending.
Bless you friends
