There are times circumstances overwhelm you. Like a tornado, the death of a loved one or Covid-19. There are times you are responsible for the outcomes in your life. Like buying something you can’t afford, making a mistake or choosing to take a new job in a new place. And there are times circumstances and choices have nothing to do with how you feel. Like feeling as you don’t matter to anyone, sensing an overwhelming feeling of despair or being depressed. No wonder life seems hard. It is. But acknowledging life is hard is not the same thing as wallowing in self-pity. Jesus has come to share the fullness of God’s love with you, transform you from the inside-out and enable you to live the Jesus’ way. He doesn’t want to magically fix everything the way you want. He longs to help you experience abundant living in the midst of your real life.
