Why Jesus is More Than the Light at the End of the Tunnel

Life is hard.

I don’t have to tell you twice. You might feel the weight of that sentence every single day. You’ve likely felt the pain of a breakup, job loss, move, loss of a loved one, abuse, difficult friendship, betrayal, financial insecurity, injury or sickness, or difficult transition.

You’ve likely felt lonely, depressed, frustrated, angry, irritated, worried, and scared at some point in your life. Perhaps you feel those things every single day, and maybe you can’t recall the last time you were truly happy.

The world says there is light at the end of the tunnel. It promises that happiness will come. It tries to offer help by saying, “Everything is going to be okay.” But how does the world know that? It cannot guarantee such a declaration. It has no idea what lies ahead for us. How dare it try to offer us such hopeless hope in our pain.

However, Christianity is different. It says, “Everything is going to be okay” and can promise a bright future. Maybe that future won’t come today or tomorrow, but hope is indeed in our future.

In fact, we can have that hope today.

Yes, today. In the midst of the pain…

I’d like to say thank you to Caitlyn for letting me guest post on her blog Salt and Light today! Head over there to read the rest of this post! 🙂
