Television host Fred Rogers said, “Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.”
There’s a great little book called The Story of Everything. Author Neal Layton writes, on page 122, “You know, it’s possible that God’s plan for us is littleness. His plan for us may be personal failure. It’s possible that when another door closes, it’s not because he plans to open the window, but because he plans to have the building fall down on you. The question we must ask ourselves is this: Will Christ be enough?”
Recovery is all about what comes after the building collapses. With discovery comes closure of a former chapter of life. But it is only when that chapter ends that the next one can begin. The transition may be painful, but it is necessary.
If you are at a crossroads, be assured that God will not only direct your next steps; he will go there with you.
Recovery Step: Winston Churchill said, “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” I suggest you follow the advice of the prophet: “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old” (Isaiah 43:18).
