The worst thing about trouble and pain and suffering is that we sometime think that they will never end. They will never get better. It will never stop. It will always be like this. It will never change.
This is just the way that it’s going to be ever. It will never change.
That’s what we can think when we are in the midst of a tough or tragic situation. We can think, we can believe that this just the way that it’s going to be. This is the new normal. The tears will not end, the pain will not stop.
This is just the way that it is.
Ever felt that way? I know that I have. I know that’s what pain makes us think sometimes. But, that’s just not true. It will get better. Listen to what Jesus says in John 16: 20-22:
Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy. When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
It will get better. Your sorry will end. Your pain will end. Your tears will turn to laughter.
It will get better. Don’t forget that. Don’t give up hope. Don’t quit. This moment is not the end. It will get better.
Jesus loves you, He is here for you and He has not left you. It will get better. It will.
Don’t give up. No matter what. Don’t give up.
