Being a Christian does not guarantee a life free from heartache, stress, or pain. As believers, it seems there can be feelings of shame in that admission which prevents us from sharing our emotional and spiritual wounds with one another. I’m here to tell you, it’s in those times of our trouble that people need to understand God is real to us and He still loves us, whether the situation is a problem of our own making or not. It is also in those times we need the support of our sisters and brothers in Christ. His faithfulness is unaffected by our faltering.
“For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation” Psalm 100:5 NLT.
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” Galatians 6:2 NIV.
