One of the most painful lessons you learn is that life is hard. It is filled with tragedy, heartache and evil. No one is left untouched – including you. Which means you’re going to experience some incredibly difficult seasons in your life. In fact, you may be going through one right now. So what do you do when life is so hard you don’t know how you’re going to make it? Hang onto God with everything you’ve got and discover how God’s grace really is sufficient to get you through the worst days. Trust God to never waste a crisis so that you end up growing in ways you otherwise never would. And ask God to enable your struggles to become a crucible of compassion that compels you to be far less judgmental and much more graceful. Sure, life is always hard. But God is always God. And that’s always a life-changer.
