The Best Is Yet To Come

A few days ago Ryan Stevenson released a new song called "The Best Is Yet To Come".  I think this one will soon become a "regular" on Christian radio stations. In addition to being a catchy song, the words have a great meaning during this time of uncertainty. Even as things in our society are beginning to open up, we have doubts and misgivings about the future. It’s easy to feel distressed or anxious about the future when you don’t have a clear direction of where you’re going, especially if you aren't very fond of your current circumstances. You worry that your life will continue to unfold with the same old pattern that’s troubling you. As this song states:
I can’t see the future I don’t know what’s up ahead
Can’t see around the corner I don’t know what’s coming next 
I don’t have all the answers but I know it’s not the end
All I know is this
The best is yet to come 
We were never promised an easy life and its difficult to deal with life’s setbacks but we can teach ourselves how to survive, we can choose to see the silver lining when life gets hard. We can't know what tomorrow brings or what lies ahead in our immediate future, but as Christians we do have faith that with God "the best is yet to come." We can take comfort in that.
