“… and that’s the rest of the story.” – Paul Harvey
Don’t give up. Stay and pray for the rest of your story.
In today’s devotion was the conclusion of the attempted genocide of the Jews by Haman from Esther 7:1—8:17.
“And after you suffer for a short time, God, who gives all grace, will make everything right. He will make you strong and support you and keep you from falling. He called you to share in his glory in Christ, a glory that will continue forever.” – 1 Peter 5:10
“… Crying may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” – Psalm 30:5
Some nights, some hard times, last longer than others, but JOY comes in the morning!
Please don’t give up. Please know the ‘rest of the story’ will be worth it.
“We also have joy with our troubles, because we know that these troubles produce patience. And patience produces character, and character produces hope. And this hope will never disappoint us, because God has poured out his love to fill our hearts. He gave us his love through the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to us.” – Romans 5:3-5
