The struggle is real. We all go through difficult times, some more so than others.
I want you to know Jesus is real too. That doesn’t mean everything is going to be easy and okay right now. But it does mean when you are tempted, Jesus understands because he was tempted too. When you are going through tough times, Jesus knows what that is like. He was there too. When you go through the valley of the shadow of death, Jesus knows about that too. He was there as a family member and friend and as the one dying.
The struggle is real. But Psalm 46:1 says, God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
I want to invite you to worship this weekend 9:00 or 10:30am in person or online. As we continue to see how Generous our God is with our series Imitating God: Living Generously.
See you in person or online Sunday to share Christ’s Victory in real life.
