I consider myself to be a life-long Christian whose faith, despite having been at rock bottom a few years ago, is now stronger than ever. This hasn’t meant I’ve had an easy life since then. In fact, if anything I’d say I’ve faced even more challenges/difficulties of various kinds!
So what’s the point of having faith in God if He doesn’t make life any easier for us?
Just because I’ve still faced difficulties in life, is not a reflection on God’s impact on my life, as despite the challenges, I’ve coped better with them than I would previously have coped. Why? Because I’ve acknowledged that God is walking with me in every situation, and therefore have felt His love and peace around me.
Peace on the outside comes from knowing God on the inside.
