Learning a new thing like how to ride a bike, read a book, or play a new sport can seem impossible sometimes. It can be even tougher when we feel like our parents or older siblings have already figured it out and don’t understand how hard it is for us. A skinned knee from falling off a bike can get stuck in our memory and we can be afraid to try again!
But did you know God sees our struggles? He knew when He created us that we would have a hard time learning these things. Because God loves us, He sent His son Jesus who had to live through a lot of the same difficulties we do, and Jesus promised to never leave us! Jesus left us His shining example of peace and strength even in the hardest of challenges–giving up His life for all of us who have sinned.
One thing is for sure, if Jesus could live a perfect life and die for our sins, He can and will give us the strength to face our challenges, and we can take comfort in His promise that He will never leave us!
“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:20
