“We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.”
2 Corinthians 4:8-10
Life is hard for many reasons, but through it all we are being made more into the image of God.
Jesus is greater than every hardship; he is victorious over every pain. All of life’s tragedies, sorrows, and iniquities should ultimately lift our gaze to the day when the sinful difficulties of life will be taken away and the struggles of this life will only and fully point us toward the goodness and glory of Jesus.
In other words, we should long for the day when our craving for meaning will be fully and finally satisfied in God himself.
Life is Hard – God Is Greater
God Bless You
