Sundays@Seven Video Blog – When your Faith Journey is Hard

Divider
This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?

John 6:60


The truth is that sometimes it’s hard in the faith. It’s hard to deny ourselves for a period of time for fasting and prayer. It’s hard to push back against the free sex and love culture to decide to wait until marriage for sex. It’s hard to forgive those who’ve hurt us in the past. It’s hard to keep living for God instead of living for ourselves.

Yet while it’s hard at times—it’s not impossible. God gives us so much through His grace and mercy that not one of us will complain about the hardship when we get to heaven. Instead we will be grateful for the strength He provided for us to get through the difficult days. Paul wrote in Romans 8:18 “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”

Prayer

Dear Lord, it’s gets hard sometimes and I wonder if I can make it through this faith journey. My only hope is in You to grant the strength, wisdom, and grace to fight the good fight and finish my faith journey strong. In Jesus’ name, amen.
