    Yahweh said to me, "Go again, love a woman loved by another, and an adulteress, even as Yahweh loves the children of Israel, though they turn to other gods, and love cakes of raisins." So I bought her for myself for fifteen pieces of silver and a homer and a half of barley. I said to her, "You shall...

    The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt. They have done abominable works. There is none who does good. Yahweh looked down from heaven on the children of men, To see if there were any who did understand, Who did seek after God. Psalms 14:1'2 WEB.As the cashier counted out ...

A Happy Ending

  • So Yahweh blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand female donkeys. He had also seven sons and three daughters. Job 42:12'13 WEB.

    Job was a very wealthy man who went through a terrible trial. He lost everything he had. Yet, when it was over, and Job prayed for his friends, all he had lost was returned double. In chapter one of the book of Job, he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yokes of oxen, and five hundred donkeys. In chapter forty, he had precisely twice this amount. Though his first group of children was with the Lord, Job was blessed with seven more sons and three more beautiful daughters. So at the end of the book, he had double the number of children as well. God restored it all.

    You can't judge a book by reading a single page in the middle of it, nor can you properly evaluate your life by a season in the middle of it. During one year of my life, my business burned to the ground during an insurance lapse. My Dad passed away, I went through a divorce, and I started my life over with nothing. Yet, the Lord restored what I lost with better. And I thank God for getting me through those dark times. If I had given up, then I wouldn't be here writing this day.

    "Better is the end of a thing than its beginning." Ecclesiastes 7:8.

    The later part of your life can be better than the beginning. No matter what you are going through, God still has the same good plan for you that He had when you were born. When you are restored, it will be better than before. God has seen every tear, and He knows the pain you have been through. So be encouraged because this storm will pass. The Son will shine once again in your life. The ending can be better than the beginning, so don't give up in the middle.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for taking care of me. Though I don't understand many things, I choose to trust You. I know that You will take care of me, and I am so thankful. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

This is for me and my family today.  We lost my husband three months ago and me and my three children and grandchildren are facing a big loss. We miss his presence so much. We all love and trust the Lord for peace and comfort.  So yes, Amen, our season of darkness is got to get better.  Thank you Heavenly Father.
