jesus is the life!

*dude touchingly weeps on TV about his sick baby and hopes other sick babies, even if they’re poor, can be cared for and properly medically treated*

“He’s attacking Trump! He’s a bad person!”

Look, I don’t know who or what it is you morons worship. But it ain’t Jesus. You are literally about as far away from Jesus as it possible to get. 

“I don’t know the plans you have for me,” I tell the Lord. “All I see is pain and difficult times and inconveniences and hard choices and thorns and cliffs. It doesn’t make sense.” 

God says, “You don’t need to know the plans.” 

“What?” 

“You need to know me.”

—  Sara Kellar // Songs in the Night
Consider what God may be trying to teach you...
  • When you feel isolated and lonely, consider that God may be trying to teach you that we can trust He will never truly leave us alone.
    • “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)
  • When you feel heartbroken, consider that God may be trying to teach you what it means to fully rely on His strength and perfect will.
    • “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
  • When you feel like your future is going nowhere, consider that God may be growing you for the next season of your life in which you would never experience without the growth process first.
    • “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” (John 15:2)
  • When you feel hopeless, consider that God may be trying to show you He gives us eternal hope, which outweighs the temporary hope this world offers us.
    • “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)


The point is, God can teach us in every situation of our lives… we need only to be open to learning what that is.

Consider what He may be trying to teach you now!
