It’s a big world, full of so many different hills and valleys, twists and turns. Such complexities and challenges can quickly remind us that we are fragile people. Our efforts to self-comfort, and self-protect, quickly run out as soon as the stock market tumbles or the toilet paper runs out. Life brings great uncertainty, but Christ brings great assurance!

Let’s live with such undaunted faith and joy!
