God never said following Jesus would be easy. He said it would be worth it. All of us face situations and times where it's hard to be like Jesus. Situations where the temptation to do the wrong thing is stronger than we ever thought it could be. We each have areas in our lives that require us to struggle to grow. Too often we want to simply take pride in the things that came easy for us, but to truly be like Jesus we need to embrace the hard fight, and face our demons.
