Sometimes the Road is Rough
In the season of Lent, we acknowledge that our path through life is sometimes straight and sometimes winding; sometimes smooth and sometimes rocky. We are bound to encounter opposition, anger, disappointment, loss and betrayal.
Lent reminds us that Jesus experienced these things as well. We can be assured that no matter how difficult things get, God does not turn away from us. Even when we ourselves turn away, or when circumstances seem overwhelming or discouraging, God is quietly accompanying us at every turn.
