“Then the Lord said to him, ‘This is the land which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants’; I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there’” (Deuteronomy 34:4).
Education, marriage, children, and career are just some of the chapters found within the story of life. Any one of these chapters may be filled with regret and that haunting sense of being incomplete and unfinished. We love stories that conclude as we think they should. The story of Moses ends in a way that seems to us unfair. In other words, it is a representation of life. Live long enough, and you discover that the journey is more intriguing than the destination. Ours is a story written not by us, but the Lord our God. Our hope never lies in any of the characters or circumstances of the story, but rather, the Author that ties together all the loose ends into the conclusion he desires.
