Welcome to this month’s edition of Everyday Faith!
One of our favorite things about Faithbox is the opportunity and privilege we have to encourage and support you in your journey towards and with Jesus. There are so many different aspects of following Jesus, which always makes the Everyday Faith devotionals fun, exciting, and hopeful.
But we’re also well-aware that there are times in the Christian faith where following Jesus isn’t fun nor easy. There are challenges and obstacles along with struggles and battles that are equally part of the journey of following Jesus, which means we ought to speak to those times and do our best to provide encouragement for those seasons of life and faith as well.
This month is one of those times. Our theme for the month is Suffering. If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time, it didn’t take long for you to realize that just because you have chosen to follow God, your life will all-of-a-sudden get easy. In fact, it often feels like the opposite is true!
Perhaps this is what makes staying the course on our faith journeys so difficult...the struggle to reconcile believing in a “good” God while living in, and experiencing the consequences of, a fallen world.
As we embark on this journey together, our prayer is for you to be supported in your faith, encouraged in your struggle, and strengthened in your suffering.
Our journey was never promised to be easy, but God has promised that we wouldn’t have to go through it alone!
We’re all in this together,
