Love Never Fails

In times of trouble…be still and know God is with you.

Psalm 31:23

Once I said in my anguish, “I am shut out from your sight.” Yet you heard my plea, when I cried out to you.

We all go through times of darkness and suffering.

It seems it is a necessary part of this mysterious journey.

Many times, it appears that we need the suffering to force us to let go so that we can experience the new life that is coming.

We actually cause our own suffering by refusing to go with the flow of what is.

Even Jesus suffered as he wrestled with his apparent fate on the cross. He said to God, “if you are willing, take this cup away from me; still, not my will but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42)

Jesus was our ultimate model of how to live our lives.

In times of trouble and darkness, he showed us how to let go and accept what is.

But he also showed us to then place our trust in a Higher Power.

Trust that Love will lead you.

He showed us how to follow that path of Love. Jesus showed us what “unconditional” love is…by loving and forgiving others even when being persecuted and put to death.

Death does not win! There is always resurrection and new life coming.

God will save you. So when the tough times come…do not to label them as “bad” because God will surely allow those times to transform you if you are open to it.

Christ will be there with you in your struggles…and all the way through them.

It’s the way of the cross. New life is coming.

Count on it!
