Out of the Woods.

“. . .he Himself has shared fully in all our experience of temptation, except that He never sinned.” -Hebrews 4:15

There are so many highs and lows in life that sometimes it is difficult to keep up. We feel as if we’re doing alright one day and then the next day our world is flipped upside down. 

We are constantly looking for some solid ground to put our feet on, but we know that in the back of our mind that this actual place just doesn’t exist.

So how do we find peace in the unknown? How can we keep calm when the waves of uncertainty continue to roll in?

One word: Jesus.

Did you know that in his short time here on earth that He experienced the same emotions that we do? Grief, pain, joy, exhaustion. He knows it all and is able to sympathize with us because of it.

Max Lucado’s book, In the Eye of the Storm, gave me a lot of insight into this. 

We may not have an actual place to plant our feet on in order to find some stability, but luckily we do have a person we can place our faith in to get the same effect. 

Jesus will never leave or forsake us and He loves us even when we’re pretty unlovable. He is the rock on which we can stand and our Hope for everything.

He gets us.

If you’re in need of some stability and peace, look no further than the Man with the Scars.
