Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

“I’ve Already Been There”

That’s what Jesus says to us when we stumble into yet another challenging area of life. Whenever uncertainty overtakes us, Jesus says, “It’s going to be ok. I’ve been here before. I’ll walk with you and show you the way.”
That’s one of the reasons why Jesus came as a human - to show us the way home. He knows our longing, our desires, our fears and insecurities. He knows loss. He knows temptation. He knows disappointment, rejection. He knows being lied to, being used and abused. Jesus knows exhaustion and poverty and pain and to love those who are not available.
No matter how hard the road, Jesus has been there before you.
