For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. -Romans 8:18

There is an end. There is an end to today. There is an end to the week, the month, and the year. There is an end to the seasons and the moments - good and bad. Some things end abruptly. Some things just need to come to an end. But with any end, comes a beginning. A new day. New opportunities.

I'm rough around the edges when it comes to change. I'm "glass half empty." I don't welcome change happily. I see a treacherous end, instead of embracing a beginning.
In the thick of it, I try to remind myself of the end that Jesus faced. Until I realize, it wasn't really an end. The physical body of Jesus left this world, but he lives. He lives, despite the end that the world believed was necessary.
It all makes "ends" not seem so permanent; so final. For what I can't embrace, I can rejoice in knowing that Jesus has laid out for me far better things ahead.
