As I process this cancer journey, I realize that I need to do the same thing . . . look at the end of the story. The end isn't whether or not I'm cured of cancer. The end is God's glory. If I start there, then I can't go wrong.
Same goes for if I don't even know where the beginning or end is (as illustrated above). Starting with God's glory is always the best place to begin, no matter where you are in your story. In other words, the beginning and end are interchangeable.
Psalm 29 is all about God's glory. Verse 11 is especially applicable to my life and to others around me: "God makes his people strong. God gives his people peace." Amen.
(Oh, and let me know if you solve the maze!)
