Hope

Life is hard.

Pain and hurt are real.

No one is exempt.

I’m a Christian, and I wish I could tell you that Christians are free from pain and suffering.

But we’re not. At least not yet. The Bible promises that, in paradise, believers will have complete freedom from pain, sadness, and evil.

But the Bible makes no promises of that during our time here in our earthly bodies.

And don’t believe anyone, televangelist or not, who tries to tell you otherwise. 

You have a 100% chance of experiencing pain and suffering.

But surely I didn’t write this post to leave you feeling hopeless.

Nope. Because there is hope.

Don’t misunderstand me. I’m not saying there is a way OUT of your pain. But there can be a way THROUGH your pain.

Because as big as your pain is, Jesus Christ is bigger.

He’s BIGGER.

Oh, I still feel pain. I still suffer. But I am comforted and held by Jesus during all of it. Because He’s bigger than anything I can ever experience. He’s big enough to let me know that this is not going to last forever. But while it does, He will hold me close. Even if it’s until my last breath on this earth.

I never give up. You know why?

Because He doesn’t let me.

Not because I push through it. Not because I gather up enough strength for another day. I can’t. I would never have enough strength. I would never have what it takes to make it another day.

But He does. He gives me the next breath that I need. And the next. And the next.

My pain doesn’t define me. Jesus does.

“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33b

Life

Last year at this time I wrote a post about celebrating Jesus. 

It wasn’t one of my usual posts about essential oils.

I love Young Living essential oils.

And while they have changed my life for the better, they are not what gives me life. Jesus Christ gives me life. Life that goes way beyond my time on this earth.

I really hope you’ll check out that post.

Then check out this fantastic song, which describes life with Jesus so beautifully.
