You might be walking through some hard times right now. Your marriage might be struggling or maybe you are feeling lost in your work, family, or health.
We want to believe that God will make sure that life will never be too hard for us. Sometimes those who have been through something really hard will be told this as a badge of honor, “you must be really strong to be able to go through something like that.”
The Bad News
The Bible never says that life won’t get hard. In fact it pretty much promises the opposite! In John 16:33 Jesus says, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
