I know life is hard sometimes, but Christ is sweet all the time.
This is something I told a friend recently, and it’s a truth our family continues to experience richly this year. We’ve recently had lots of hard things happen within our circle of friends and family… lots of heartbreak, loss, brokenness, and uncertainty. Maybe you feel that weight just reading the news everyday. Life is full of trials and can feel harsh at times, but through it all, we see God’s overwhelming grace, comfort, and peace fill our very weak hearts. When plans and the future seems muddied by current circumstances, I rest in God’s promises knowing He works things out for good for those who He called according to his purpose. I rest knowing He’s written this story of mine and I simply have to take each step forward with faith. While trials bring the unknown, I’m so thankful Christ has made Himself known to me, and in Him I place my trust. So yeah, life is hard sometimes, but Christ is definitely sweet all the time.
Isaiah 40:28-31 “Do you not know? Have you not heard? Yahweh is the everlasting God, the Creator of the whole earth. He never grows faint or weary; there is no limit to His understanding. He gives strength to the weary and strengthens the powerless. Youths may faint and grow weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint.”
