This great video by Chris Stefanick hit me like a ton of bricks. I have to admit that recently I have not been a pleasant person to be around. I could definitely use some prayers right now. I am struggling with bitterness, anger, jealousy, and feeling like I was abandoned by friends.
As Stefanick says, “Even if you don’t believe in God, the Cross says one thing really clearly: life is really difficult sometimes. But as a Christian I can never look at my God and say ‘You don’t know what this is like to deal with pain, to deal with suffering, to watch your body fall to pieces in front of you, to have people who are supposed to be there for you all take off.’ Because he does.”
