It’s Not Supposed To End This Way…

I’m sure that’s how Abel felt when his brother Cain began to kill him..,

I’m sure that’s how Samson felt when his eyes were gouged out…

I’m sure that’s how Hezekiah felt as he laid on his death bed…

I’m sure that’s how the saints felt upon hearing the death of Stephen…

This is not the way it’s supposed to end…

Have you ever had one of those moments? 

 I know, me too! 

My dad wasn’t around growing up…

This is not the way it’s supposed to be…

My mom lost children due to miscarriages.

This is not the way it’s supposed to end…

My wife and I felt the pain of not having a second child. 

It’s not supposed to end this way…

My uncles life was taken.

It’s not supposed to end this way…

The powerful couple at church are no longer strong.

It’s not supposed to end this way…

I can’t watch Remember the Titans anymore because I didn’t like how it ended. The young man who was in the car accident before the championship game…

It’s not supposed to the end that way…

That totally crushed me. 

I like my movies with a good ending. 

I like my life the same way. 

But it doesn’t work like that often. 

Why do I have a metal device in my chest? It’s not supposed to end this way…

One thing I do like are the extra scenes at the end of movies. 

Don’t you? I like the Avenger movies that show what’s next! 

While life will not work out as I expect, I know what’s next…ETERNITY…

That will never end…

That will never disappoint (for those in heaven).

I will be disappointed again in my life. But I know how the movie ends…

It ends with the saints in Heaven!!! 

Cross Now…Crown Later
