When I gave my life to Christ, I have also given up my rights; to be hurt, to be offended. And it’s an everyday struggle not to question why it has to be that way.
But Jesus loves me even though there’s every reason that makes me unlovable. He looks past all that. He may feel more hurt because of my every imperfection He continues to embrace.
Christian life is not easy. It won’t, ever, be easy. But I’m not thriving for an easy life. I’m looking forward to my perfect life in heaven in God’s perfect time.
Just like every fallen leaf that makes up a lovely autumn scene, your every struggle contributes to the imagery of your God-centered life.
Tired of being hurt? Relax. Every pathway that God leads you to has a swing waiting for you.
Rest. God wants you to rest.
