You Were Made For Hard Things

You Were Made For Hard Things

My daughter has a sign above her bed. It says, “I can do hard things.” And that’s an essential reminder to all of us.

When I was younger, I thought that my life would continue along a simple and easy path. Boy! Was I unprepared for life!

We always like to do easy things. Hard things scare us because they take effort. Effort stretches us, and as we stretch, we grow. The truth is that growth inevitably always hurts, one way or another.

Jesus never promised that our lives would be easy. On the contrary, he promised that,

In this world you will have trouble (John 16:33a.)

This is probably Jesus’ least-popular promise! No one has it easy.

But the good news is that that isn’t the end of what Jesus says, because He continues,

But take heart! I have overcome the world (John 16:33a.)

Remember: Through him, you can do hard things.
