Life changes... unfortunately.
We experience different things- transitions, struggles, loss. Some situations are not as stressful or traumatic as others. Still, they do cause us to suffer through unsettled times.
I have a friend who was recently going through his struggle. As strong as he is in his faith, his situation did cause him to lose his focus on Jesus. It wasn't that he pulled away from Him, he didn't lean on Jesus as much, as He calls us to do. I think we've all, at one time or another, do the same thing.
Then my friend heard the new Pat Barrett song, "The Way." He sent me a text as the song was playing to let me know it was what he needed to hear. The simple reminder that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life! The part I love about that song is the bridge-
It’s a new horizon, and I’m set on You
And You meet me here today with mercies that are new
All my fears and doubts they can all come too
Because they can’t stay long when I’m here with You
We can bring our fears, doubts, shame to Him. When we align ourselves with Jesus, He takes care of all of those things. He is the one sure thing in our lives. Our Rock, our Fortress.
Are you going through that right now in your life? What fears and struggles do you face? Have you turned to Jesus to look for that strength, that foundation? Take a few minutes to listen to this song and be reminded of all the things He is for you.
This has become my "go to" song. My reminder that no matter what battle, season, struggle I am going through, Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life!
In Christ's love,
