Do I really have it that bad? Heck NO! And I can sit here all day long and tell you how I really want to be more like Jesus. But do I really? Or is it just the same old religious claptrap that rolls off of the tongues of most of the men in our kingdom today?
Yet somehow Jesus seems to know just how to be a great shepherd and guide to me in times just like these. There is a still small voice that reminds me of the price he paid for me. ME!
“He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer.” 2Corinthians 1:4-6 (New Living Translation)
