#LentChallenge Day 12
I don’t want my life to be hard. I naturally gravitate toward comfort. Sometimes I expect if I’m doing everything right my life will be pain free. Sorrow is something I fiercely avoid.
I realize that thinking is inconsistent with some of my core beliefs but it is amazing how pain avoidance sits at a deep subconscious level.
In our #LentChallenge reading for today, I’m struck by Jesus’ words in Matthew 26:38:
My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death.
If Jesus faced sorrow, he knows how to meet us in ours. Don’t run from sorrow, run to Him.
