Life–if we’re honest–is hard.
That’s not to say it isn’t good. Laughter, the arms of a child thrown around your neck, kisses from the one you love–these are all precious tidbits of the countless things that keep us striving to lengthen our days.
But life does throw many a curve ball. And these unexpected hurls of devastation feel meteor-sized by the time they strike.
I’ve been blessed enough to not have a multitude of wayward pitches chucked my way. But when it happens the aftermath is intense, especially when there’s loss. Because those I love, I love deeply.
Yet even then I have a foundation that keeps me anchored and assures me comfort will come.
We’ve not been promised easy. Nor has our faith in Christ granted us immunity from the hardship and heartache of life.
We have, however, been promised Christ. And in the end, I can endure the uncertainty and pain of life, just as I enjoy the fruit of all the blessings.
Because I am His. And He is mine.
