The End of Our Movie: Faith in the Midst of Uncertainty

The End of Our Movie: Faith in the Midst of Uncertainty

I recently found myself deeply inspired by a Daily Verse I read, which played into a conversation I had with my son. He questioned, “What if I don’t become the greatest of all-time table tennis player?” My heart immediately thought about how when we already know the outcome, our journey is shaped by that knowledge. Think about it - if you’ve ever accidentally watched the end of a movie before the beginning, doesn’t that knowledge shape your perception of the entire film?

This brought to mind the scripture, which aptly said, if you were to leap to the last chapters of the Bible, you’d see God’s final act of redemption. He mends the shattered, revives the lost, and gives healing to our fragmented souls. With this knowledge, shouldn’t our present be painted with colors of hope, perseverance, and unwavering faith?

I told my son, “Envision yourself achieving greatness. Let that picture guide you during challenging times.” Our fears often arise from uncertainties, from not knowing our ‘movie’s’ end. But imagine if we could momentarily transport ourselves to those golden moments of our life where everything makes perfect sense. Would that not fill our current trials with renewed strength and faith, knowing that we’ve seen our triumphant end?

In Psalm 30:5, it’s said that “weeping may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.” That dawn might not be tomorrow or even soon, but God promises a new day where everything aligns perfectly. While we don’t have the privilege to skip to the end of our movie, we have something equally powerful: faith.

Our journey is rife with moments of doubt, worry, and setbacks. But instead of getting caught up in the ‘what ifs’, why not channel our energy into faith? Remembering God’s promises and the joy that awaits us can act as our compass during the storms.

Next time doubt tries to creep in, think of your movie’s end. Let the thought of the triumphant finish fuel your journey. Hold onto the promises God has given you, and let them be the light guiding your path. Every challenge, every hurdle is merely a scene leading up to the grand finale. And with faith, we can confidently navigate through, knowing that our ending is nothing short of extraordinary.
