Wouldn’t It Be Nice?
When you cook a cake or other food items, there is a recipe that you are to follow. Wouldn't it be nice if our lives were like that? Simply follow a few easy steps and then enjoy the wonderful results.
Life is not that simple. We live in a fallen world and there is no simple recipe to follow that will guarantee a life free of loss, pain, injustice, or suffering. In the presence of life's pain, we need the personal care of the Savior who lived in this world and actually experienced the same struggles we face. Hebrews 4:15 encourages us: "For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our many weaknesses, but was at all times tempted as we are, yet without sin."
Our Savior is fully aware that there is no simple "recipe" to prevent the heartaches of life, so He enters into them with us. How about it, will you trust Him with your tears today?
