Sometimes, I wonder if the bends and twists on this road of life can break things.
Some days, I find the courage to admit that I'm scared.
As I read through these piles of research, scribble down notes, and whisper fragmented prayers, the outline of my next book surfaces. Sharing from the wreckage of divorce, steps toward healing come into focus on the page. Hope faithfully emerges.
But hope and healing are the last things Satan wants for me. Or you.
So he hurls roadblocks of shame and doubt, blaring distractions like sirens.
He loves to cause wrecks.
As we slip behind the wheel of life, you and I need to know this one thing to face tomorrow:
This journey zigzags and spirals, but what keeps us from faceplanting in a ditch is just that: Christ wins.
We stagger toward Easter morning whiplashed, bruised, and broken — desperately needing God's Resurrection promise. Our hearts suffer in this fallen world — but what can scare us when we know Christ wins?
When chaos shatters tranquility and we need peace like a river, God buckles us into His indestructible Resurrection truth that, no matter how dizzy the road blurs our vision, Christ wins.
It means we can risk it all to share the hope of Salvation, because when we surrender the driver's seat to Jesus, we can let go and rest in His amazing grace.
Christ lovingly navigates those hairpin turns when hurt skids us sideways on two wheels.
He stands beside us in the debris to offer the ultimate CPR of hope: "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall never perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
We suffer relationship rollovers, yet we experience healing in this: Christ repurposes pain for His gain to use what we thought was wreckage for His glory.
Sharing those darkest moments could send me careening headlong into a tree of fear — to give up and not allow the power of His healing and forgiveness to shine bright.
Instead, His Word provides strength and assurance that this road leads precisely to one life-changing truth that buckles us in safe and sound:
And because He lives — we can face tomorrow.
