Bible Reading: John 6:15-21

In the bible there are no promises that life on this earth will be easy. In fact, if you read through some of bible, we are told that suffering at times is necessary so that we may grow. Our bible reading today tells us that when we openly accept Christ he will walk with us through our struggles.

We all face troubled times in our lives, whether it is the death of a loved one, the pain of divorce, or any other major issue that we may face. Pain and suffering is a part of life; at some point we all have issues that we struggle through.

At one point in my life, I went through a bitter life changing break up from a six year relationship. My life was upside down, the future we had been working towards suddenly gone. I dealt with depression, anger, and a host of other issues following the break up. That point in my life was also the first time I truly accepted Christ's guidance. Today I can say that life is so much better. Jesus could always see my destination, even though I couldn't.

Prayer: Dear Lord, I willingly receive your guidance, please walk with me today as I work through my struggles. Amen.

But He said to them, I AM! Do not be afraid. Then they willingly received Him into the boat. And immediately the ship was at the land where they were going. John 6:20-21


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Pain and suffering is a part of life; at some point we all have issues that we struggle through. That's certainly true. I've been thinking that the peace of Jesus doesn't free us from pain, it gives us a sense of calm in the midst of pain. Great thoughts!

Great thoughts indeed. I wonder if the concept of "breaking up" comes though without definition - just a thought.

Great devotion! I like your "wrap up" sentence: "Jesus could always see my destination, even though I couldn't."

I just realized that submitting an article this way, it shows up on the front page. For anyone interested this is my entry into Dub's off season mini challenge. http://www.faithwriters.com/Boards/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=12964 A great idea by dub.. I enjoyed writing this.

Isn't it great that God has promised to be there with us through the trials that come our way? A couple of other verses that come to mind regarding that are Isaiah 43:2 and 1 Corinthians 10:13. He'll go with us through the trial, and when the trial becomes more than we can handle, he'll make a way of escape. Good thoughts! :D
