This world hurts. People mistreat, betray, and abandon us; the economy, at times, sideswipes us; and eventually, our health and vitality will fail. Jesus never promised us a pain-free life. But He did promise to stand with us through every storm, to bring beauty to our greatest hardships, and to one day bring us to a place of eternal rest where sickness, dysfunction, and death won’t exist. In the meantime, we hold tight to His promises, knowing His truth and grace will give us all we need to stand firm even when it feels like our world is spinning out of control.
