“The fulfillment of dreams and promises kept does not signal that the dance is over. The music plays on and we dance until our Father says it’s time to go home. Sometimes we even dance in the rain, but that’s OK. We’re going beyond!” --Betty T. Smith
When God makes a promise, His fulfillment always exceeds our expectations. Once we submit to His calling, He takes us beyond our comfort zone into the fullness of life in Christ. Just as parents delight in watching their children grow, God longs to watch His precious children mature and learn to trust Him, pray and read the Word, and seek His will for our lives.
Beyond the Happy Ending encourages each of us to trust God, and to believe in the life-changing power of prayer. Betty Smith has witnessed reconciliation, restoration, healing and miracles in her own life and in the lives of others. God not only fulfilled His promise to restore her marriage, but He also opened doors and granted divine opportunities for her to travel around the world, bringing the love and message of Christ to people in ways that she could never have imagined.
