But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. (Matthew 13v21 NIV)

Meeting Jesus is more than just an experience or feeling.

Feelings fade.

There is an initial excitement but there is more to this.

That joy is meant to deepen and not wane.

You are not in a religious bubble.

Many things conspire to end this wonderful relationship.

You will face many challenges.

Resisting the desire to follow Him wholeheartedly.

Jesus never promised easy.

Because of what Jesus has done in you and for you.

Makes it even more important.

That you do everything to maintain your love for Him.

Talk to Him.

Tell Him how you feel.

Ask Him to explain when you don’t understand.

Jesus doesn’t want anyone to fall away.

He is more than enough to meet every need.

What you experience is normal.

Don’t use it as an excuse to give up.
