Life is easier when God is with us


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times Let’s face it, when we exclude God from our lives our lives only get harder. Why? Why do our lives get harder when we exclude God from them? That’s because God will never steer us wrong. We, on the other hand, will often steer ourselves wrong because unlike God we are not perfect. We steer ourselves down the wrongs paths and make our lives so much harder than they have to be because we often listen to our sinful nature which tells us to do things we shouldn’t do. When we do that our lives become that much harder as we deal with the consequences of our own foolishness. When we are faithful to God, however, we listen to Him and let Him guide us along the path He would have us to to go. When we do that we are allowing ourselves to be guided by a guide who will never get us lost, an advisor who will never give us bad advice, and a friend and counselor who will always strive to make our lives easier and happier. Most importantly of all, we have a Lord and Savior who will not only make our lives easier here, but much easier in eternity as well.
