It’s easy to fall for fancy captions and pretty pictures to make you believe a life with Jesus looks convenient.
The last year has helped me process and redefine what God’s faithfulness looks like in our life, and, spoiler alert, it’s bigger and deeper than getting what we want. I learned firsthand that his faithfulness is rooted in the promise of the last words Jesus says — “I am with you always, to the end of the age.” When we don’t get what we want and when we feel the most alone, he’s there.
I hope my life with Jesus looks like I’m convinced that promise is true. Because the last time Jesus showed up to the disciples, he didn’t promise them great convenience, he gave them a great commission.
