Jesus is Our Happy Ending

I loved reading fairy tales when I was little. When my daughter got old enough, we used to read the books and then watch the movies based on those fairy tales. I know I’m not alone. The movies have been and remain big money-makers. We just seem to have a fascination with romantic tales of rescues, good triumphing over evil and of course, the happy endings. I’ve been thinking about happy endings since I wrote that last post and I think I know why so many of us love hearing, reading and watching movies about them: God made us to have the hope of happy endings in our hearts. 

That hope runs deep within us, no matter our circumstances. Hope lives inside those in the most dire and desperate situations. I often think about and pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in North Korea. Their flame of hope may be small, but they cling to Jesus, knowing he has not left them alone. Their happy ending will not be in this life, but it will come, because Jesus is the happy ending for all of humanity. 

We all face trials and difficulties but we can persevere and endure them, knowing Jesus is our rescuer, our knight in shining armor, our superhero and the one who has already triumphed over evil. He is our great hope and he will never let us down. No matter how long it takes, and no matter how bumpy life gets, our happy ending is secure in him.
