The Lord of all eternity—the God who gives hope through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ—sees your struggle.
Listen as He speaks through the pages of Scripture:
“You are so thirsty. Why are you spending your life, wasting away, on what is not food or drink? Come to me and get real food and drink without price. Enjoy rich food. Listen to me and come so that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you. My never-ending, never diminishing love will be with you always.” (Isaiah 55)
“You’ve put so much pressure on yourself. To man-up. Always be good. Always do the right thing—or at least what seems to be what’s expected. The obligations you feel you need to keep won’t save you. They can’t. They’ll crush you. Come to me. Take my yoke. I’ll teach you. I’m not cruel or harsh. Just the opposite. I’m gentle and humble. Come to me to find rest for your soul. My commandments are not a burden.” (Matthew 11)
“You’re looking for something permanent. Something that’s going to last. But you’re looking in all the wrong places. Nothing in this life lasts—not fame, not riches, not pleasure, not power. But I’m ushering in a lasting city—an eternal kingdom. Go after that with all you’ve got. Sell everything, if you have to. Don’t let anything stand in your way.” (Matthew 6; Hebrews 13)
