Tough Times

Many of us want to think life will always go well for us. Although it sounds romantic to have a carefree easy life, it's not supported by scripture. Even Jesus, for a moment, felt that God had forsaken him on the cross. However, that was God's shining moment, the moment he redeemed all of humanity. If only humanity would believe that...

Even though we may feel He is distant at times of difficulty in our life, He is not. Jesus says, "I will be with you always even until the end of the age."

What many of us need to realize is that there is a real enemy out to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10) Sometimes, when we are "attacked" by our enemy our natural response is to blame God. As believers, we know that all things happen for the good for those that love Christ Jesus and are called to His purposes. In fact, in the "dark times" are periods in our life, however painful, that we can grow the most if we continue to trust God and search for Him.

Read and believe Isaiah 43:1-2 and let that encourage you if you are going through a difficult season in your life.

Hung out with Epic last night and shared some Jesus-style compassion with the next generation.
