It doesn't matter how you started.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29:11, ESV.

“Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace” Psalms 37:37

God has promised you a bright future. He’s promised you a peaceful end. It doesn’t matter how your story began, you can trust that it will not end the same way. He has promised that everything will work together for your good because you love Him and are called according to his purpose (see Romans 8:28). Your life will not end the same way it began.

Are you listening?

Your life may have began in darkness, but it will end bright and victorious. It may have began in sin and filth, but it will end in beauty and glory. God specializes in turning things around as we keep walking. We may not know how He does it, but somewhere along the way, He goes to working in our lives, in our hearts, and in the hearts of those around us, and before we know it things have changed and shifted in our favor.

Are you listening?

Don’t worry about how you started out in your journey. Don’t worry about how God is going to do it for you. Don’t feel ashamed about your beginning. Trust in God’s divine ability to change our course. Just go about your day to day life while He works. You will look up and see. You will be pleasantly surprised at how He has done it again.

Prayer. Yes, Lord. I hear you and I receive these special words right into my heart. Thank you for blessing me with a promise. No matter how I started, you will bless my ending. My day will end blessed. My story will end blessed. My life will end blessed and victorious. You have the final say in my life. You are sovereign. Help me go about my day trusting in you to work everything out for my good. I love you, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  4. What a relief to know Father that You will finish what You have started! So many times we want to help You, then in our flesh we mess up and cause Your plans to be postponed and slowed down. But Your word is the truth, it’s not by might not by power but by my Spirit says the Lord. So what is our part? Not to grieve or quench the Holy Spirit but to submit to it. To allow God to have His way no matter how difficult to submit and not wanting to force our will in the matter. This takes courage and means we have to go against our comfort zone. Jesus knows our weaknessess and sympathises with us. He continuously interceeds for us and encourages us with His love. What an awesome Father we have Hallelujah!

  9. Habakkuk 3 vrs 17 “Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the fig vines; though the labor of the olive may fail; And the fields yeild no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold;And there be no herd in the stalls; Yet l will rejoice in the lord.

  11. Job15:4 if we always have our way out in all situations, no one would fear God no one would pray to Him.
    This verse makes me realize that the Lord always wants us to pray to Him. He needs us to seek Him at all times.
    When faced with trials and temptations, we ought to see them as a way that the Lord is using to have us by His side.
    WWhen all ain’t going the way we want it to, we always pray to God, we seek to see His hand in our different situations. We always knock at His door waiting for answers from Him.
    Trials and temptations are at times wake up calls that the Lord uses to have us by His side. They always remind us that we’ve a father who can handle our everything if we only seek Him, if we only ask Him to, if we only knock at His door for help.
    Trials and temptations keep us where the Lord wants us to be. I always ask myself if i had all I wanted,would I really pray to Him? I mean if I had the power to fix things my own way would I ever remember that there s a God in heaven? Not really!!!
    Just have a self examination and answer the same question. When s the time that you ar so very close to God? When s the time when yu hardly let God rest just asking whether He forgot all about yu???
    Our difficulties leave us in a much better position than they found us. We always have testimonies to tell.
    They strengthen our relationship with God and that’s the most important thing.
    It doesn’t really matter how yu started, your ending will be a great one just because our dear Lord wants it so

    Dear Lord, give us patience to take us through all our difficulties. Let’s always seek, ask and knock at thy door for thy help.
    You are the potter and we are the clay mould and makes us in the best shapes ever. Help us not take difficulties as punishments from yu rather always help us remember that your grace s sufficient to take us through it all. Remind us that your grace and mercy are new each and everyday.
    Thank you Jesus and please answer all the prayers in our hearts.
    Love yu all my sisters in Christ
