Long-suffering challenges us to rally patient endurance to get through one day at a time.
Our confidence comes, not from ourselves, but from our Creator, our Savior, and Spirit of the One True God. The only requirement? Not to change who we are or fix all of our dysfunctions, but by believing in Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, God with us, who came to save us, once and for all.
God can meet us in our fears through music, sustaining us through songs that proclaim who He is and worship that repeats the truth of His word.
We are undoubtedly living through tricky times, but humanity has endured tragic and hard circumstances before.
The world’s unfairness isn’t just a fleeting feeling, it’s a fact of life on this sin-cursed earth being magnified. There is real evil in the world, intended upon stealing, killing, and destroying us. Our enemy lies. When we feel we are surrounded by unfairness and evil, lies and manipulation …it’s because we are. It’s hard, and it can make us feel hopeless and helpless to stop it. Especially when our kids are hurting and there’s nothing we can do to make it right or ease the pain.
