“Resurrection means that the worst thing is never the last thing” (Frederick Buechner).
I love that.
When you have that moment of panic in the morning before your alarm is set to go off, when you toss and turn at night for thinking about all the stupid things you said and did that you wish you could take back, that’s not the end.
The moment you got fired, the moment your marriage ended, the moment you lost a friend, is not the last thing.
Because of the resurrection, God is working all things together (even the worst things) for good– even the best– for those who love God and are called according to His purpose.
That’s the last thing– the good that comes out of the worst, the victory that emerges from your defeat, the restoration of all you’ve lost over your life.
That is my kind of good news, especially on a dreary and rainy Tuesday night.
