133. With Jesus or not

Whether we are with Jesus or not, the difficulties of life will arise and we will have to go through these trials. It’s in fact much better to go through a trial with Jesus than without him.

How many times have we met a person in Jesus who walks freely through trials, while others who do not know him feel the weight of suffering that often seems insurmountable; suffering that is often linked to the past.

The difference is impressive. To live our trials without Jesus gives us the impression of being abandoned, alone. Then, the test becomes devastating.
To live our trials with Jesus is to grow in faith trusting in him. To trust Jesus is the sign of a healthy faith, despite the trials. So we will get better passing through the pitfalls of life.

When it’s stormy and we still dare to go somewhere, when we arrive, we’ll tell ourselves that we did well to go after all.

The storms of life are sometimes difficult. Of course, it’s not always easy. With the decision to continue with Jesus, the road is more pleasant. Jesus opens the way.

We are getting there in faith. We are happy for every step we take. Only the decision to live the test with Jesus can free us to a great extent and at best from fear and evil.

We can say with the psalmist:
Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my saviour. For you I wait all the long day, because of your goodness, Lord. Psalm 25, verses 4 to 5a

We are passing through the trials of this world and we are worshiping more and more the Lord who keeps on being with us. The door opens in front of us and then we can share our conversion experience with others.

Let’s live in joy as this world passes and savour true life in God. Let’s receive and cherish the Love of God in us. May we appreciate all that God has already transformed in our life. Let’s keep him with us and we will appreciate him more. He Loves us with infinite Love.

Why not try the experiment with Jesus? It will be the best decision we’ll ever take, for life.
