Although your former state was ordinary, your future will be extraordinary (Job 8:7, CEB).
What can you say to drug addicts and ex-convicts, who think they’ve come to the end, to give them hope? The wise man said in the Bible: The end of a matter is better than its beginning (Ecclesiastes 7:8).
It doesn’t necessarily matter how you begin; it matters how you end.
How do you make sure that you end up well? By believing and trusting in what God has promised you, and allowing Him to do what He wants to do with your life. It will always be something extraordinary !
Are you in a bad place right now? Have you been there for a while? Remember the Cross, and remember the resurrection. Remember: where you begin doesn’t count, only where you end up. You have been redeemed and you are now defined by the endless riches of God’s goodness.
God is committed to your story and He already knows the ending. He loves you.
