Jesus is 100% Certain to Be With Us

The local and world news has been full of reports of people who are suffering - due to weather, fire and the actions of others. My heart, and prayers, go out to them.

Joni Eareckson Tada knows a lot about suffering. This quote from Joni is powerful and true as in this world it is a 100% guarantee we will suffer, but Jesus is 100% certain to be with us through every challenge we face.

We need to take this truth to heart for our lives and model it to the ones we love, because it is 100% certain they will also suffer at one time or another in their lives. If they are able to see how we respond to suffering, they will know what to do when they experience suffering. If they see how we turn to Jesus for courage, comfort, strength and perseverance, they will know to do the same.

Don't keep it secret how you have experienced suffering in your life and how Jesus was with you and helped you through it. Telling your grandchildren is an important, necessary and powerful way for you to hand down the faith.
