Father walking hand in hand with son, rear viewIs it worth it? Are all the ups and downs of a Christian life, worth it? Is it worth having family make fun of you? Is it worth being discriminated against? Is it worth giving up the alcohol, the drugs, the indulgent parties? Is it worth it staying in the marriage you want to leave? Is it worth it loving the one who hurt you? Is all of this worth it? Yes. Yes it is. Soon after I signed up for Christianity I knew it wasn’t gonna be easy. But I have also learned it is worth it. Every trial, every pain, every valley, every storm, every ailment, every rejection, every fear…every thing I have gone through that has not been easy, I have gone through WITH Jesus. And the only reason I’ve come out of it, is because He walked me through it. I love this promise, “for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Yes, at times, God has been silent. But He has never been absent. He has never abandoned me in pain or forsaken me in circumstance. So is this Christian life worth it? Yes. Because without “Christ” in my “Christian,” I would have given up a long time ago. I believe it is worth it on Earth. And I look forward to my day in Heaven when God says, “Well done, Heather. Wasn’t it worth it?”
