I don't think Jesus wants us to be miserable.
I really think that He wants us to enjoy life.
Not just enjoy going to church (although I think He wants that too).
I think He wants us to enjoy laughter and good meals and long hugs and lasting relationships.
My walk with Jesus is driven by the fact that I believe that He is FOR me.
This helps me deal with the not-so-good moments.
If it hurts, He's going to use it.
I won't stay there.
He has my best interest in mind.
I'm going to be okay.
