I figured this out after spending close to ten minutes deciding exactly how to best fade the ending of a song I was mixing. I’m no good with endings. I’ve also noticed I’m often the last person to leave social gatherings. I just absolutely enjoy being around loved ones, and I never want to leave. Although that all sounds truly sentimental, it leads me to an important question. Do I hate endings because I fear there isn’t anything better down the road? Part of being a Christ-follower is trusting God that he is working things together for our good. Part of trusting Christ is following him into unknown places understanding that he is walking with us, and that there is more life to be had along the way. Many times the storm is raging and we’re doing everything in our power to navigate around it when God is pointing straight in. Living inside a perpetual comfort zone is not trusting God. My prayer is that we learn to trust Jesus so much that we rejoice in endings, confident that our maker will guide us through whatever is next, even when it looks scary.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.
