Faith Makes it Possible, Not Easy!
Who says a life of faith is easy? No one with much experience in that area. But, all things are possible with God!
I saw a billboard on the way to yoga this morning that I've been reflecting on all morning- Faith Makes It Possible, Not Easy! How many times do we believe that if we "have faith", our life will be a bed of roses? I know I'm guilty. I've also been guilty of believing that if I'm struggling, I must be doing something wrong. But very often, as you look at historical figures, Biblical Heroes of the faith, and even just your friends who have struggled and persevered, you find that it's often the moments of struggle that turn into your defining moments, the reason you shine, the purpose for your life on this earth.
John 16:33 in the Christian Bible quotes Jesus as saying:
These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
That's the best news out there for three very important reasons:
- Jesus warns us ahead of time so that IN HIM we can have peace no matter what circumstances face us today or the days to come.
- He reminds us that we will have trouble, battles, struggles, and even defeats no matter how "good" we are.
- Jesus encourages us that in the end, if we're on God's side, we win because He has overcome the world.
No matter what battle you face today, remember, if you trust in God, He has already won! Maybe not this battle, but HE has won the war against death itself! If you have questions about how to be on this winning team, post them in the comments, I'd love to answer and help you onto the winning team of faith in the only person who will never leave you forsake you or let you down- Jesus!

Cure for Bitterness?
When I was very sick, there were many days I couldn't walk without a cane or crutches. There were some days, I couldn't walk at all. One of my favorite Bible passages was when Jesus healed the paralyzed man. It's a great story on so many levels: he was healed, his friends were looking out for him and were persistent in searching for help, and he walked away a new man. But what if looking at the obvious has us missing the point of the story completely?
