It’s NOT A Fairytale!

If I learned one thing from my first newspaper editor, it was this:


everybody has a story. To prove that to me, he’d often send me down to Main Street

in the small community where I worked and would tell me not to come back
until I had a story.
I never came back without one. In fact, I found some
pretty good ones just by talking to people who stopped into the post office to
drop something in the mail or by the shoe shop to have their shoes repaired by the old guy who had been repairing shoes for going on 50 years.
Indeed, I met many interesting people on Main Street and, to this day, feel indebted to that editor for teaching me this valuable lesson so early in my career.


After I became a Christian, I began to examine this pearl of wisdom a little closer. Christians, I found, just like everybody else in the world, have their own individual stories. The difference is that most start out the same…on a dark and stormy night. And ALL end exactly the same…happily ever after!

No fairy tale here, folks. That’s God promise to each and every one of us. If you ask Him into your heart, God Himself becomes your knight in shining armor; your prince; your superhero—absolutely more wonderful and more powerful than anything ever born of the human imagination.

And He and your happily ever after await you just beyond Heaven’s door. My place is saved. Is yours?


And The Word of God Says… 

John 3:16

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

John 1:12

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Anyone who belongs to Christ is a new person. The past is forgotten, and everything is new.

Revelation 3:20

Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. (NLT)
