"Be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap." — Galatians 6:7
Our life bears the fruit we planted. When the day is done, or the year, or the life, all of us are faced with bearing the results of our own choices. No one escapes the end of a thing, no matter what it is, whether it is the end of a day or the end of a life. It is God who has ordained that there be day and night, seedtime and harvest, life and death, a beginning and an end.
It is hard for all of us to come to the end of a day or a life and know that no matter what we did, or what happened, it is over. But God ordained the end from the beginning, so there would always be a place to stop and trust. When we have learned to take up the burden of responsibility for our own choices, then we can begin to change the life of days we are living. We can end a way of being and begin another way of being — right where we are, no matter what is happening. You can cease to fear your life and your own choices and learn to rejoice in the power you have to start over, every day, every moment.
Let the truth set you free to be who you want to be, to live the life you want to live. Then you can welcomed the end of days as the beginning of new life. We can learn to welcome the end of things as a new beginning every time we choose. God made us and gave us the power of choice. We will always be bearing the fruit we have planted, one choice at a time.
