'Life is Hard' Encouragement

Do you ever feel discouraged, down, depressed--no hope for anything better in your life? Take courage. A brighter tomorrow is coming. But in the meantime...

“The truth is, life is hard. We live in a fallen world. Even those who have been redeemed live in earthly bodies and have to deal with the realities of temptation, sin (both our own and others), disease, loss, pain and death. We are not wrapped up in some sort of celestial cocoon where we are immune to pain. Not until God makes a new heaven and new earth will we be totally free from the ravages of sin. Until then, there will be tears, sorrows, pressures and problems.

But—and here’s the good news—God is not removed or detached from our problems. No, the God of the Bible is “a very present help in trouble” Psalm 46:1. That doesn’t mean He waves a magic wand and makes all our problems disappear; it does mean He uses pressures and problems to mold and shape our lives and to make us like His Son.

We want God to fix all our problems. God says instead, “I have a purpose for your problems. I want to use your problems to change you and to reveal My grace and power to the world.

That is the Truth—and the Truth will set you free.”
