Suffering is not an option. It’s a difficult, mysterious, devastating part of the human condition.

Jesus understands suffering. Turn to him when the pain—mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual—is too much for you. He will raise you with him.

[Jesus] said, “The Son of Man must suffer greatly and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and on the third day be raised.” Luke 9:22

    Suffering in this world is real. When it hits, as it does one way or another every day, I don’t have to make it worse on me, but do all I can to make it better–the best is to take it to Him. Thank you for the reminder.
