What do you find at the end of everything?

Answer: "The letter "g"?" Was that obvious? Maybe so - but not to me. When I read this on the plane, it sure got me thinking - and of course now sharing. So join me as we take this riddle a step further...

Indeed, the letter "g" is found at the end of everything and beyond that
God is found at the end of everything
and it's not because the word "God" starts with the letter "g" - I'll explain... 

God is not only at the beginning of "get ready" & "go", He's also at the end of everything.
Afterall, He is the Beginning and the End*

With any and every challenge or impossibility, you face remember that -
with God all things are possible.** 
There you go, He's at the Beginning and End of those impossibilities because "we can do all things through Christ Who strengthens us"*** and "can do nothing without Him"***

Finally, at the end of "every everything", we all meet God because if is "appointed once for men to die and after that judgement"***** So whenever our lives end, after all we have achieved or not achieved we "find" God.

That riddle sure got me thinking...and giving me more motivation to make sure that God is in everything I do because at the end of everything...including life, I will be better off once I see God...
...and remain with Him for eternity.

Food for thought: Who do you find at the end of everything that you do (& accomplish)?
