God never promised us an easy life but one that we would get through. Life can be ‘hard’ when you go through it alone. But with God, we are never alone. He’s there whether or not you realize it. You have access to him twenty-four hours a day. He does not sleep or forget about you. Often we go searching for answers in the wrong places. When we expect for life to be smooth, we have to know–life can be challenging. Our mortality is real. We come here for a range of time with purpose, and when our time is finished, we go back to God. Life is by no means perfect, and neither should we expect it to be. We are moving here from faith to faith, the only thing that is real is the relationship between you and God. All else is an illusion.🌹🌹🌹
