The thing I KNOW is that our walk with Christ is not without struggles nor suffering.
He never promised us that it would be. He did promise us that He would never leave nor forsake us no matter what. I find comfort in that promise.
When we are dealing with being tired, worn out, sad, afraid, unsure, or whatever it is that is going on in our life if we are not very careful we will allow it to consume us. So much so that we give up on people in general, family and friends. We hide in our closets and invite no one into our life and we become bitter, complacent, and stale. We no longer feel or see the need to be faithful to our church and in the midst of fellowship. We find ourselves digging deeper and deeper into a pit.
I asked a 90 plus year old friend of mine once; How have you managed to live all these years, dealing with the hardships of your life that you've had and yet remain so faithful to Christ? Her answer; "I keep company with Jesus". WOW!!!
The demands of this world can just flat out be exhausting! But with Jesus we can have peace, joy, freedom, grace and mercy.
For me, when I place myself at the service of our Lord I find that everything else falls into place somehow, sometime and somewhere along life's way.
