Don’t pray for life to be easy.

In my opinion, one of the biggest reasons people lose faith in today’s society is that they expect life to get easy as soon as they accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. But, I’m afraid that’s just not going to happen. Sorry to break the news.

As God’s children, we are watched over, no doubt about it. But, that doesn’t mean things will get easy for us. Think about your own children. How scary do you feel when you watch them get on that bike without training wheels for the first time? You know they are going to crash, but do you stop them? No. You let them fall. It’s all a part of learning to ride a bike.

Kids fall, but they get back up again. They have courage and strength in the knowledge they are not alone. Mom and Dad are there to help them, to pick them up and tend to them when they fall and get hurt. They have someone to guide them. They can trust that their parents have the knowledge to help them through what they are facing.

God works in the same way. He’s not going to take away all our problems, dilemmas, heartbreaks, or obstacles we face. That’s part of the lessons we’re here to learn. But, we will not be alone.

Life will NOT get easy with Jesus by your side, but I can guarantee that you will be able to handle whatever lies ahead. Trust the Lord to guide you, trust that He knows how to help you through whatever you are facing. Find strength and courage in knowing that you are NOT alone. You’re being guided.

Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior is the biggest part of faith. That is how you become saved. Trusting God to guide you through this life is how you find strength and joy. God wants you to be happy. Have faith in that.

"Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I
am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I
will uphold you with My righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10
