“Do you really mean it? Do you really mean that you will always love me?”
Now, feeling the emotion between them, and the deep need that Taylor obviously this moment was dealing with, Casey very softly but convincingly responded.
“Yes, Taylor, I really mean it; I really will always love you!”
“Good. I needed to hear it because I think we have a problem that might strain that love. I’m pregnant. Oh, Casey, I’m so sorry.”
Casey was speechless.
Under ordinary circumstances, a young wife getting pregnant isn’t a problem. But Casey and Taylor are not living under ordinary circumstances anymore. The government has passed a law forbidding couples to have a baby unless they have been granted a permit from the Department of Homeland Security. Rather than risk prison and lose their child to a foster home, Casey and Taylor make their escape to a remote location in the mountains.
In this end-time scenario story, Casey struggles to keep his trust in God as learning to survive in the wilderness is the least of the troubles he faces in the years before Jesus returns. Picture yourself in his shoes—will you be faithful until the end?
Although we don’t know precisely how things will play out in the months or years just before Jesus comes, we do know that a deep, unwavering trust in God will be essential. And that obedience to His commands will be crucial for getting through until that small cloud about the size of a man’s hand appears in the eastern sky.
