Happily Ever After

Facebook Twitter Email

As girls, we all dream of being the princess with the Happily Ever After story.  We read books or watch movies that leave us looking forward to our future happiness.

For many of us, the dream of happily ever after may seem like an impossibility.  We encounter The Enemy and our world is rocked.  Sometimes, it is due to our choices.  Many times, it is due to sin or evil done to us; things beyond our control.  These things can happen to us as children, teens or even adults.  During those difficult times, it is hard to see past the difficulty to the happily ever after we have pictured.

As a Disney family with grand-girls, we watch a lot of princess movies and have met our share of them at Disney World.  As I watched a princess movie for the one millionth time this week, I was reminded of something interesting. The princesses all had their moments of dealing with the enemy.  Rapunzel had Mother Gothel, Snow White had the Evil Queen, Cinderella had the Evil Stepmother and Evil Stepsisters, Ariel had Ursula, Belle had Gaston and Aurora had Maleficent.

The first time we hear their stories, we believe they will get their happy ending, even in the midst of the sadness and despair.  We have to have that same belief that we will get our happy ending.  Our Heavenly Father has already written the end of our story – an eternity with Him.

The difficulties we all face are just a part of our story.  We don’t see the whole story, but He does and He can be trusted.

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”   Psalm 139:13-16
