Oh the Easy Life!

Yeah right! Life isn’t easy!

Are you in a tough spot? How about friends or family? Is life smooth sailing or are facing rough times?

I used to think that all good Christians had easy lives. I thought if you went through life doing what you were supposed to do, life would be easy. Then I realized a few things about this world.

Cancer doesn’t play favorites. Anyone can lose their job. It isn’t always easy to get pregnant,  stay pregnant full term, delivery successfully,  or be survived by your children. Good people are widowed at 30. Good people watch their homes burn. Good people struggle with sin.

Here’s the thing. Even Jesus struggled! He dealt with temptation.  He was frustrated by those who wouldn’t listen. He was sinless, yet tortured and crucified.

God doesn’t promise an easy life. He just promises to help us through. He tells us that all things are possible through Him. He never told us He would make it easy.

Pray for those around you facing struggles. Help when you can. Be the window to Jesus they may need.

Blessings!
