When Life is a Beast

Sometimes life is a beast.

12 The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. 13 And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.

Mark 1:12-13

Jesus had to face temptation, he wanted to understand what we go through. He went into the desert and was tempted and had to deal with wild animals, but he had help. So too with us, maybe our “wild animals” are not actual wild animals, but it could be stress, frustration, the feeling of being behind, the way people treat you… we’ve all been there. When the beasts of life attack, just breathe. Know that Jesus knows frustration too. He will be there for you. Just hang in there, hang on, you can do it. You never know what amazing plans God has for you after you get back from the desert, you can do it, He can help!
