and in my service in ministry I have brushed up against the dark side of things more often than I can recount. It really is a jungle out there and all of us, even if we don’t think so, are being hunted.
All I know for sure is that if you stay close to Jesus you’ll make it through. Yes, you will get dinged up a bit and if every once in a while you wander away you’ll know some dangerous times. Just stay within eyeshot of the Light and you can find your way back.
You don’t have to always understand everything and there will be a lot of things out of your control. Yet if you’re with Jesus it will be okay, one way or another. Time passes, things change, but Jesus remains. Know just that and you will live well.
