One of the many things that I love about the Christmas season is getting to watch Hallmark Christmas movies on TV. Every one of the movies is cheerful and full of adventure. As the movie begins, we get to enjoy the breathtaking scene of the falling snow and the beautiful village full of joyful Christmas decorations. Of course, the movie starts with the introduction of the leading characters and then moves into the plot of the story. Then, just when you think all is well they start building up the problems and disappointments with which the character must deal. We know that there will be something that will cause stress and confusion in the journey for the characters. However, I never get all worried and fearful, WHY YOU MAY ASK? Because I have seen so many of the movies that I know how they will end. Boy gets girl, they kiss and live happily ever after.
As we contemplate on all the problems and anxious events that are happening in our world today and in our personal lives, I think that we should remind ourselves that God’s got this! You see if you have received Jesus as your personal Savior then you can count on what the Bible says in the end. It turns out OK! Best said in an old song, “I read the back of the Book and we win.”
“I’ve been readin’ in the Bible bout the ending of the age, and one thing’s for certain it grows closer every day. But I’m not concerned about the way it will end.
‘Cause I’ve read the back of the book and we win.
I’ve read the back of the book and we win, no more livin’ in darkness, we’ll be living at home again. You see there ain’t no need to worry about it if you’re born again. I’ve read the back of the book and we win.
No, there’s ain’t no need to worry about it if you’re born again
I’ve read the back of the book, and we WIN!”
I am so thankful that our Heavenly Father let us read the end in the Bible so that we don’t have to be worried through all the middle stuff that happens in life.
Joy and Merry Christmas,
