Reflection: My Happily Ever After

In all the years that I've lived, I've realized that my happily ever after lies entirely to me. Whether I'd live conveniently or miserably is up to how I've saved all the money I earned. Whether I'd end up with a jerk or stay single and at peace, or find someone who is perfectly imperfect for me depends on who I give myself to.

My love story with the Lord depends on how loyal and faithful I am to Him. The strength of my relationship with God depends on whether I work on it every day or lazily let it weaken.

God will not force me to love Him. He won't send lightning to strike me when I don't pray.

He will not stop loving, forgiving, and protecting me. Whether I give Him back the praise or not will not change His being God or lessen His majesty. He is God and will always be God whether I worship Him or not.

I need to worship Him to remind myself how blessed I am to be under His wings. To remind myself that I can do anything through Christ who strengthens me.

And isn't it a wonderful feeling knowing that Somebody so important loves you so much that He's willing to give up even His life for you?

So my happily ever after depends on whether I accept that love or reject it. My happily ever after depends on whether I walk with Him or away from Him.

My prize--my happily ever after---is waiting for me at the end of the race. It's right there with my name printed on it, waiting for me to claim it. But the question is, am I willing to run the race until the very end to accept it?

I'd be crazy not to.

  1. Hey Lux ... Although our stories might be quite different, our love for God is something powerful and beautiful we share.

    It is, for sure, the greatest love story ever told ...

    Bless you, girl!

  2. Following the Lord is a good thing.

    I've a new website: Comedy Plus

    Have a great day. ♥

  3. This love story has a guaranteed happy ending if we run the race with our eyes fixed on Him.

  4. It can be so easy once we have our happily ever after to forget that it was God who gave it to us. I am glad you haven't forgotten, and you will show your thanks as well ^.^

  5. You are right on point here. Our target in this life must be to reach God. That should be our main reason to live. Thank you for reminding us about it.

  6. Hi Lux! It is a wonderful thing to know that Jesus loves me always. I am the one who keeps wandering away! What a faithful love and friend he is. You are so filled with wisdom to know that.
    Sunday blessings,

  7. Dear Lux, this is beautiful. The empty tomb guarantees those who seek and claim it will have their happily ever after.

  8. What an important message imparted with such few words! I so agree with you - our joy, our strength lies in Him and our efforts to build and maintain our relationship with Him.

  9. "My happily ever after depends on whether I walk with Him or away from Him." Love your truth here.

  10. So true. It is when we walk within God's unconditional love for us, we can achieve a level of supernatural greatness. Just wrote a new piece on this actually. How are you, Lux?

  11. Hi Lux! It's so good to be back here in this space of yours! I've missed your words of inspiration! Our happily ever after IS ours to choose. He is there with open arms - will we walk toward or away?

    We are both writing about the importance of connecting with Christ. Of how the depth of our relationship with Him determines the depth of life fulfillment. I love it when God aligns hearts and connects our messages ♥

    Your post is my featured post for #MomentsofHope this week! I can't wait to share it with my readers tomorrow!

    Much love,

  12. Amen! Am I going to receive His free gifts, or do my own thing? The choice is mine. God won't force me. Wise words. So glad I am choosing to receive.

  13. Hey Lux, stopping over from Laurie's Moments of Hope link up! So nice to be in this space. This post was different than what I thought it would be. So nice to see you pointing people to the only One who really satisfies the love longings of our hearts.

    Blessings to you!
