Is our story any different? Jesus moments before his crucifixion, foretold "For if this is what is done to green wood, what will be done when the wood is dry?". [Luke 23:31]. He also said "Then you will be handed over to be tortured and put to death; and you will be hated by all nations on account of my name." He continued "but anyone who stands firm to the end will be saved."
We realize everyone around us need us but for us to depend on, it is only Jesus. When we are betrayed, estranged and are taken advantage of, we know He is with us. But we do struggle to fix our eyes firmly on Him, stand back up again and continue our way atop the mountain.
Who else can we go? Where else will our solace come from? None else has the light, but You. Though seem distant yet so close. We too are among many but alone. Alone but with Jesus.
