Matthew 6:24

I read this verse this morning – and I disliked it. I read the King James Version, and then the New Living Translation. I kept thinking, ‘I know that there are troubles in my life, but I am trying to be positive here! Yes, my chronic pain sucks at times, and my family is apart right now… But I am trying to trust and have faith and carry on without making myself more depressed! 

And then I looked at the verse again. 

And I realized who stands with me during these times and am reminded why I can continue through all things, alive with grace.
