“Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.”
—2 Corinthians 5:9
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote, “Great is the art of beginning, but greater the art is of ending.”
One of the things I’ve realized over the years is that life can be full of surprises. For instance, people whom I thought would make their mark on the world simply crashed and burned.
Then there were others whose potential wasn’t all that obvious. I wondered whether they would amount to much of anything. Yet God put His hand on them in an amazing way, and they achieved things in an incredible way.
