Remaining hope-filled: If it’s not good, it ain’t over yet.


This weekend, while absently allowing an advertisement to play, I heard a powerful quote: “It’s always good in the end.  So if it isn’t good, it isn’t the end yet.”
On Sunday May 27th, I listened to a friend of mine sing, tears springing forth as I listened to him pour out with passion and power,
“You hold my every moment,
You calm my raging seas.

You walk with me through fire
And heal all my disease.

I trust in you.
I trust in you.

I believe
You’re my healer
I believe
You are all I need
I believe
You’re my portion
I believe
You’re more than enough for me…”

When I shared how moved I was with him afterward, my friend explained the day was the anniversary of his healing from a devastating medical condition that threatened to take his life.  Today, two years later, he’s an incredible dancer, singer and writer: An inspiration to me, to many.

Wherever you are, whatever you’re confronted with might seem insurmountable, impossible to cope with or overcome.

Here’s the thing: You’re alive.  You have life.  And life is always good, even if we can’t see it.

This is a reminder to be thankful for all you have, all you are.

This is a reminder that life is always good in the end. So if it isn’t good, it isn’t the end yet.

“In every death there is life.
This day two years ago (May 27, 2010) I almost lost my life; I almost died.
I was in the hospital a total of 40 days then another two weeks, had four major surgeries, 7 blood transfusions, heart failure, was in a coma for four days and awoke on a ventilator.
I went from 150lbs to 105lbs.
I had 16 feet of my small intestine cut out and now I have only 4 feet which technically isn’t enough for me to eat regular food and digest
YET HERE I AM LIVING A NORMAL AND HEALTHY LIFE.

I just want to share that God is amazing and miracles do exist.

Our lives represent God’s grace.

When we are willing to believe God can do anything.

When we make up in our hearts to live, even when death is knocking God does the impossible.

You never know what life will bring you but if you walk WITH God, you can be guaranteed a life worth living.”
