Another difference in the human life and books is we can't skip the scary or bitter parts. In life, we have to deal with the monsters on the next page. We face hard obstacles, go through struggling times, but the best part about life is that it gets better. Books are that way too. They start out a lot like birth, just figuring out the storyline, as we keep reading we see the emotions the characters go through but every book has an ending. Whether good or bad the book, like our lives ends. Was our book satisfying? Was our book worth reading?
OF COURSE! Why would you ask yourself such a silly question? Well actually that makes sense too. Sometimes we feel stuck in the one horrible part of our book. We think that the struggle won't ever end but that isn't true! It rained forty days and nights during the flood and they made it to the end! The Israelites wandered around the wilderness for sixty or so years but still Joshua and Caleb were able to go to the Promise Land. Right now, you may wish you could skip this chapter or go back to a previous one. This may seem to be the absolute worst part of your life but it will get better. There will be a rainbow at the end of the flood or a Promised Land after all that wandering.
Hold tight to the good memories to get you through the bad ones but don't get consumed in the fire of your thoughts. We need to move on to the next chapter. We need to open our eyes from the hurt and see what God has planned for us. We need to find our rainbow. This happens now. It's time for the next chapter.
