Christian book stores are filled with topics including “Your Best Life Now” and other similar books that promise 10 steps to lasting happiness and fulfillment. However, while Jesus does bring the best life for us; the reality is we live in a broken and sinful world that is never void of pain, suffering and lost.

Therefore, we should balance our view and understanding of God with remembering Jesus’ Words in John 16:33 that say; “In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

When we find Jesus we find peace in the midst of our pain and suffering. And when we turn to Him asking for the forgiveness of our sins and recieivng the love He has for you and I, we then will find Him to be our burden bearer.
