Where Else Could We Go?

Ever been really frustrated? I mean to the point that you don’t know what to do, what to say and just want to give up? Ever been there?

I know that I have. And I’m guessing almost every one of us has at some point in our lives and at some point in our faith. Sometimes we can just be tempted to lay down and not keep going.

Today in John 6:66-69, we see many people walk away from Jesus. Jesus turns to the Twelve and asks them this:

After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with him. So Jesus said to the Twelve, “Do you want to go away as well?” Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”

It could be tempting to quit. To lay down. To stop. To not keep going. To walk away. To give up. But, there’s not life in that.

No matter how hard the road you are walking, Jesus is with you. He is the life. He is hope. He is peace.

Where else could we go? We can’t find life anywhere else in Him.

So today, don’t give up. No matter what. Don’t quit. No matter what. You can do it. Keep going. Keep walking. Keep praying. Keep pulling. Keep trying.

Don’t quit. No matter what. You can do it. Or better said, He can do it through you. Keep being faithful. Know that greater is He who is in you than He is who is in the world.

You can do it. He life. And you won’t find that life anywhere else. Keep going.

Through Him. You can do it.
