No One Promised You an Easy Life

strong_enoughWhy do you look to other people and things for comfort? I am your comforter, come to Me. When you hurt, I also hurt, but attempting to find escape through things of this world will only bring you more pain and sorrow. I did not promise you a pain-free life in this sinful world, but I give you those experiences so you draw closer to Me. That is where you need to be. I did not create you to handle everything on your own, I am here for you, come closer to Me so I can wrap My arms around you. Everything will seem different and easier to bear when you rest in My embrace. I will never let you go, hold on to Me.

Jeremiah 8:18 – I would comfort myself in sorrow; My heart is faint in me.
