Life Is Hard

Life is so hard for all of us, it seems impossible to be as daring and noble as Jesus was. We may desire to speak out on behalf of humanity as he did but instead find ourselves struggling with marriage, children, illness, work, the mortgage and our busy day-to-day lives. We may feel too depressed, discouraged or hopeless to try to change the world. All the more reason to follow Jesus up a mountain in search of prayerful solitude. Like him, we need to seek out mountaintop solitude and peace. We need something more than our country or television or the world can offer. Like Jesus, we need God. ~ John Dear
