Life is hard, but God is good
Have you heard that song before? I haven't heard it in quite some time, but the title and a few lyrics kept coming back to me over and over this week. It seemed that every day I would hear of a dear Christian going through a trial or heartbreak. One particular day I heard some truly heartbreaking news - about the loss of a child. My heart hurt for this family that I knew briefly while in college. My heart was so heavy for their grief. I prayed and prayed for them. "Life is hard, but God is good" kept going over and over in my mind. Despite the fact that life IS hard, aren't you glad that we have Jesus? He truly is so good. I am so glad that I can trust Him with my life.
