There once was a girl that went to a maze. When she first started her journey, she was unsure of which way to go. There were many different routes and the girl had no knowledge where they would lead. She decided to head North, thinking that would be the easiest way; not knowing all the challenges she would face along the way. She decided to turn right, but that was wrong. Then she went to the left and was on the right track. Proceeding on her route, she came across six people that were crying at a dead end together. This saddened the girl. “Are you all ok? Do you need help?” The girl asked. “No, we give up,” they replied. The girl thought to herself: Maybe that’s what a dead end really means. If they don’t get up and try to get through this maze, then they will die in the same place because they gave up too soon. Those people are stuck somewhere they don’t want to be because they stopped trying. She didn’t want to be like them because she came to the maze for the Purpose to make it through. “If there’s a way in, there’s a way out,” the girl said. She continued on her journey and any time she went a wrong way, she tried another. She was determined and followed no one. It started getting dark and she got lost. The darkness made it more difficult and she was struggling. The girl noticed another route and headed towards it, only to end up at another dead end. “IMpossible! I give up! This is hard. I’m stuck. I want to go back,” she shouted. Frustration began to take over her. She was running out of hope. “I’m weak and tired. Please get me out of here… please. In Jesus’ name, Amen,” she prayed. A new dawn was approaching. The sun started to rise and shine through the maze. The girl looked up and noticed a shining Light in the distance. “One more time,” her Heart whispered. While wiping off her tears, she lifted herself up off the ground, then began to follow the Light. She was feeling hopeful that maybe there was a way out. When she got to the end of the maze that morning, everyone was clapping. The Light took her to a route that she didn’t know existed. She had no idea when starting her journey that there would be a big surprise at the end. The girl was astonished at what was on the other end. The maze was full of happiness and sadness, but the happiest people were the ones that kept going until the end, no matter how hard it got. They all celebrated. She was extremely thankful that she didn’t give up.
Not the end, just on to a new beginning.
