It’s not the end, it’s only the beginning

You have lost everything? The future is bleak. Desolate. Bare. Pitch darkness. Cold. If I were to tell you that there is a bright future awaiting for you.. that you are in the tunnel.. but you will walk out of it. This is not the end. It’s only the beginning if you hold on to Jesus’ hands. You can in fact look forward to a very exciting journey ahead of you.

I am not lying to help you feel better. I am telling you the truth. It’s a path I have walked. In the darkest moment of my life, I held on to Jesus’ hand. When the world collapse on me, when the future seemed bleak, I believed that God has a great and good plan for me. I held on to the hope that Jesus is leading me on a very exciting journey.

Indeed, Jesus never fails. The darkest path of my life has been the most exciting journey of my life where I experienced miracles, power, love and grace of God. Not everyone get to experience such things from God and I am glad I had.

There is hope. It's not the end.
It’s not the end, it’s only the beginning.

So, if you feel as if you are in pitch darkness, you are merely in a tunnel. Someday, you will see light at the end of the tunnel. Stand up. It’s not the end. It’s only the beginning if you hold on to Jesus’ hand.

Sure, I know. You are feeling an excruciating pain in your heart. May I invite you to listen to this song with me:

 

 

Here’s the lyrics for this song by Don Moen:

Lord, You seem so far away
A million miles or more, it feels today
And though I haven’t lost my faith
I must confess right now
That it’s hard for me to pray

But I don’t know what to say
And I don’t know where to start
But as You give the grace
With all that’s in my heart

I will sing, yes, I will praise, even in my darkest hour
Through the sorrow and the pain
I will sing, I will praise, lift my hands to honor You
Because Your word is true, I will sing

Lord it’s hard for me to see all the thoughts
And plans You have for me, yes it is
But I will put my trust in You
Knowing that you died to set me free
Oh thank God You did

But I don’t know what to say
And I don’t know where to start
But as you give the grace
With all that’s in my heart

I will sing, I will praise, even in my darkest hour
Through the sorrow and the pain
I will sing, I will praise, lift my hands to honor You
Because Your word is true

I will sing, I will praise, even in my darkest hour
Through the sorrow and the pain
I will sing, I will praise, lift my hands to honor You
Because Your word is true, I will sing, I will sing, I will sing

Oh, we sing to You Lord
Oh, we sing to You Lord tonight
Halleluiah, we sing to You Lord
Oh, we lift our voices and sing to You

Worship You Lord, we sing to You Lord
We sing, we sing, We sing, we sing
Oh, we worship you Lord, oh, thank You Lord
I will sing, oh yes I will, I will sing
