Life can be hard. Really hard. No wonder you yearn for God to give you peace, security and sanctuary. Thankfully, that’s exactly what God does – at least most of the time. But sometimes God doesn’t want to make your life easier. Instead, sometimes God wants to make your life more difficult so that you can make others’ lives better. So don’t be surprised if you sense God calling you to wade into suffering, deal with mean people and walk into challenging situations. And don’t be surprised if you are more than ready to go.
